About The Event

Fr. Albert Beltz will be speaking on “The Beauty of Femininity in the Church”. We know of

the Church’s own femininity and of the great roles that Mary and many women saints have

fulfilled in the Church down through the ages. Nevertheless, Pope Francis is calling for the

“feminization” and “demasculinization” of Holy Mother Church in our current age. Does the

Church need more women in the hierarchy or does she simply need to help us, as women, to

more perfectly fulfill the Divine Purpose of our feminine nature? Father Beltz will focus on how

we reconcile these great witnesses and teachings of Holy Mother Church with our role as Catholic

women in the Church of today and tomorrow. It may be surprising what roles women should

and should NOT have in a parish and why!

Perry Smith will be offering two talks...

In his first talk, The Dignity and Role of Women, Perry will demonstrate that in everything

God does, He does so with a purpose and a thoughtful plan. When God made Adam and Eve, He

created two types of the same being, not due to an inequality but simply due to the fact that these

beings do different things. In acting according to our nature as women, Perry will explain how

we become more perfect, both naturally and spiritually.

In his second talk, Feminism in the Modern World: The Distortion of the Divine, Perry

will explain the devastating philosophical effects that feminism of the modern world has wrought

upon humanity and the natural order, in both the family and the Church, and by extension, in

the world at large. We will learn why it is important that we attend to our true feminine nature

and how we can not only examine our hearts to recognize the scars of feminism within them but

also how we can use this sacrificial time of Lent to remove them.

Jill Spieldenner will extend the previous talks and show us how we can practically apply this

teaching in our lives as wives, mothers, co-workers, friends, and members of Holy Mother

Church, universally and in our individual parishes. What actions ARE those which are true to

our nature and which actions upset the natural order of creation in our families, homes, offices,

parishes, and world?
