News anchor and best-selling author to speak at St. Peter Church

By on January 30, 2009

Award-winning journalist and best-selling author Raymond Arroyo will discuss Engaging the Culture on Monday, Feb. 2, at 7 p.m. at St. Peter Church, 1891 Kaneville Road in Geneva.

In this bracing and funny talk, Arroyo will reveal how some well-known Catholics have engaged the culture and transformed it. Discover how you can do the same and why this cultural engagement is so important today.

Arroyo is seen each week in more than 100 million homes around the globe on EWTN’s international news magazine, “The World Over Live.” As host and creator of this show, Arroyo has interrogated the leading figures of the day, including Mel Gibson on the set of his film, “The Passion of the Christ,” and Pope Benedict XVI in the only English language conversation ever recorded with the pontiff.

Arroyo will also introduce his latest best-selling book, “Mother Angelica’s Private and Pithy Lessons from Scriptures.” He has also written New York Times Bestsellers “Mother Angelica: The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve and a Network of Miracles” (Doubleday), and “Mother Angelica’s Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality” (Doubleday). Books will be available for purchase, and Arroyo will sign books as well.

Everyone is welcome. This speaker is sponsored by St. Peter Church’s Adult Formation and by the Parent Education Committee of St. Peter’s Home & School Association. A free-will donation will be taken. Call the Parish Center with questions, (630) 232-0124.
