SAVE THE DATE: Catholic Tipping Point Tour with Fr. Tony Flannery

A coalition of many of the same groups that sponsored Austrian priest-reformer Fr. Helmut Schuller's successful speaking tour of the United States last year are coming together to bring one of the founders of Ireland's Association of Catholic Priests, Redemptorist Fr. Tony Flannery here for a series of engagements this fall. The tour will occur from October 22nd to November 18th and is projected to include Washington, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Providence, Syracuse, Cleveland, Detroit, Minneapolis, Memphis, Sarasota, San Antonio, St. Louis, Phoenix, Sacramento, Portland, OR and Seattle. Specific dates and venues are not yet available but once they are, they will be published on the Catholic Tipping Point website.

Fr. Flannery is the author of numerous books including A Question of Conscience, a detailed account of his dealings with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which tried to silence the priest after they found his views on such matters as women's ordination and contraception unacceptable.

Sponsors of Fr. Flannery's 2014 speaking tour include Call To Action, Catholics For Choice, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, CORPUS, DignityUSA, FutureChurch, National Coalition of American Nuns, New Ways Ministry, Quixote Center, and Women’s Ordination Conference.
