The DeSales University (Center Valley) Communio Circle met four times over the past year. “We have changed the format for our meetings,” Larry Chapp announces. The Circle now has two different conversation strands occurring among different group members and local scholars. The general meetings are attended by everyone who would like to join. During those times, “we discussed recent presentations from Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger on the nature of faith and the pedagogy of desire,” Larry reports. Other meetings during the year have engaged local scholars and
academics. “In those meetings we have concentrated our discussions around selected essays from W. Norris Clarke's, Explorations in Metaphysics: Being-God-Person.” The format change seems to be a success, since “both sets of meetings have been well attended!”
