I am in Grand Rapids, MI for the annual gathering of Acton University, several days of lectures and presentations on many topics. People of various faiths come from all over the world for this. When I picked up my registration pack, I already saw familiar faces.
The hash tag is #ActonU if you are interested in tweets from participants. We have quite a lineup this year.
You will also be pleased to know that Masses in the mornings are offered in both forms of the Roman Rite. We are free and, hopefully, virtuous.
I think there are over 800 here tonight.
I am meeting lots of people who read the blog!
There are here 1043 participants from 63 nations!
Sam Gregg is giving the 5 Rules of Engagement.
Fr Robert Sirico is giving tonight’s address.
