Off to Esto Vir

By | February 28, 2009

I’ll be attending the Esto Vir men’s conference today in Appleton. I plan to interview one of the presenters, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, an African-American who’ll discuss "In the Footsteps of St. Joseph: Living Each Day as a Man of God."

I’d like to get Deacon Harold’s take on the election of our first black president, and if this Catholic ordained minister has mixed emotions about President Obama.

Bishop Ricken will also be main celebrate of a Mass that ends the conference. Look for the story and photos in the print edition next Friday.

After the conference I’m heading to St. Lawrence High School Seminary in Mount Calvary (located in the Archdicoese of Milwaukee). My son Dominic attends school there and the seminary is having an ethnic festival.
