Fr_John_Judie_small2.jpgThe Institute for Priests and Presbyterates of Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology, St. Meinrad, IN, will present a free lecture on Monday, October 22, to open the annual “Gearing up to be a Pastor” workshop.

The lecture by Fr. John Judie, a priest of the Archdiocese of Louisville, is titled “Pastoring in the Parish: Where Grace Abounds!”

Based on his 25 years of experience as a parish priest, Fr. Judie will offer insights into the joys and opportunities of being a pastoral leader in the parish setting. He will share practical, pastoral and caring ways in which a pastor and his parishioners can be a blessing to one another. Through the development of such relationships, everyone can discover the power of grace at work in their midst.

The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. CDT in the Gallery, located on the first floor of St. Gregory Hall on the Saint Meinrad campus.

Fr. Judie graduated from St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, MD. He has served in the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Office of Ecumenical Affairs and Office of African American Catholic Ministries. Following a six-month sabbatical in East Africa, he established Fr. John Judie Ministries Inc., a non-profit organization that assists people in East Africa, including a seminarian sponsorship program. He is currently the pastor of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Louisville and serves on the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Priests’ Council.
