Joan Bradley, Benefactor Relations Coordinator at Belmont College, sent me an invitation to attend the 2009 Envoy of the Year Award Dinner, honoring Archbishop Charles J. Chaput. (Author of the book, Render Unto Caesar) As if that's not enticing enough, also in attendance will be Patrick Madrid, Editor of Envoy Magazine (and accomplished Catholic apologist, author of many books and tapes), George Weigel (sigh, author of The Courage to Be Catholic), Joseph Bottom (publisher and editor of First Things Magazine), Fr. John Corapi (via video), Carl Anderson (Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, via video) and hundreds more.
Is that a stellar lineup, or what?!! It's being held at Belmont College, in Belmont, North Carolina. The address brought back memories because years ago, I lived in Mt. Holly, North Carolina. I would love to attend but because of distance and time, cannot. Maybe you can? It certainly will be a memorable event, full of encouragement and support for Catholicism. If you do attend, send photos! Here are the details:
