The Minnesota State Fair is a huge summer event, and I do mean huge.
A reader of the blog just alerted me to a Catholic initiative at the Fair. Here is the text I was sent.
It’s one of the few things on a stick at the Minnesota State Fair without any calories or fat, and it’s FREE! The Cathedral of Saint Paul Young Adults are kicking off their 2nd annual Theology on a Stick event at the Minnesota State Fair this weekend, with theological talks, answers to questions about relationships, musical entertainment, and the most exciting episode of all – Grill a Priest! No, wait….we’re not actually putting a Priest up on the Webber. Every year we have great local Priests come and answer any and all questions you have! From faith and relationships, to the economy and war – these Priests will take any question you have! This year we’re excited to host Bishop Lee Piche and renowned professor at the University of Saint Thomas, Dr. Michael Naughton.
Theology on a Stick is generously hosted by Saint Bernard’s Bulldog Lodge on the grounds of the Minnesota State Fair on the corner of Dan Patch Ave and Cosgrove St. This year’s official sponsor is Catholic Aid Association (www.catholicaid.com), a local fraternal benefit organization serving more than 74,000 members in the upper Midwest. The dates are Friday August 28th, Saturday August 29th, Wednesday September 2nd, Friday September 4th, and Saturday September 5th.
