The Catholic University of America

Fr. Frank Donio, S.A.C., D.Min. is Director of the Catholic Apostolate Center and presents internationally on evangelization and on the co-responsibility of all of the baptized.  He is also President of The Catholic University of America Alumni Association.

His talk for the Catholic Leadership Conference is titled
"Citizens of Two Cities": Catholics in the Church and in the World.

Gaudium et Spes invites all the baptized "to strive to discharge their earthly duties conscientiously and in response to the Gospel spirit" (43).  Over the last fifty years, living as "citizens of two cities" has become more challenging with some of the baptized opting to live one way in the Church and another in the World or not in the Church at all.  This session will explore ways to live the Christian life in an integrated way that is authentic to Church teaching.
