International Catholic Celebrations: Cultural Diversity of the Universal Catholic Church
Bill is a minor world traveler (24 countries & 45 states), public speaker and enthusiastic lover of all things Catholic! Join us as he offers examples of inspiring, interesting and—sometimes strange —examples of how our Catholic faith has been incorporated or evolved into important traditions and celebrations around the world.
Bill will supplement his talk with pictures, video and music as we explore uplifting and Holy processions and pilgrimages, national dousings and water fights, Marian races, dancing skeletons, and many more. And most importantly, we will examine the important faith basis and teaching from which these celebrations and traditions have developed.
