Our Historic Bicentenary is nearly upon us. For four days, we will journey through our past. Listening to voices that we ignored and abused; learning from our alums about their impact on the Church; and honoring those who have contributed in countless ways to make this Bicentenary everything it is.
It is really important that everyone interested in coming should register. This is our only way of knowing how accurate the count is. We need those numbers for seats and food. Please do register if you planning to come; and please don’t register if you are not planning to come (empty seats, others turned away, and wasted food are not good).
It is amazing that we have reached two hundred years. It is a significant milestone. We are the generation that is present to mark this moment. I invite you all to do so.
