Dialogues on Faith & Culture- TOPIC: THE CHURCH IN A POST-CHRISTIAN AMERICA
Location | Solid Coffee Roasters: 12147 S St., Artesia, CA 90701
The fastest growing spiritual group in America is not Christianity, Catholicism or Islam. It is those who would classify themselves as the “nones” or “I’m spiritual and a good person, I’m just not religious”. What are the implications of living in this current spiritual culture? Are we living in a time where “in those days (Israel) had no king, everyone did as he saw fit.” (Judg. 21:25)? What factors are defining the “I’m spiritual and good, I’m just not religious” movement? What voice should followers of Jesus have with a post-Christian spirituality defined largely by Gen-Xer’s and Millennials?

Dec. 4 | Los Angeles, CA
85th Annual Procession and Mass in Honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego
Location | (Corner of Cesar Chavez Ave. and Ford Blvd. in East Los Angeles): 3324 E. Opal St. Los Angeles, CA 90023
The annual pilgrimage of the images will conclude on December 4 at the 85th Annual Procession and Mass in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe in East Los Angeles. The Guadalupe Procession is the oldest religious procession in L.A., as it was established by Mexican Catholics who fled persecution by the Mexican government during the Cristero War in 1931. The annual celebration commemorating the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe recalls the miraculous apparitions of the Virgin Mary to Saint Juan Diego at Cerro del Tepeyac (Tepeyac Hill), Mexico City, in December 1531, when she left her image on his “tilma” or cloak. Her image has been a symbol of unity, peace, compassion, and hope for people around the world. La Peregrina, a pilgrim image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, is an exact digital reproduction of the original image in Mexico City’s Basilica, which has been blessed and touched to the original image. A decade ago, the image was hand-delivered as a gift to the Archdiocese by Monsignor Diego Monroy, then Rector of Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica in Mexico City. Everyone is cordially invited to the oldest religious procession in Los Angeles, where thousands of Catholic faithful of different ethnic communities gather to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe, Protector of the family, and St. Juan Diego. Following the procession, Archbishop José H. Gomez, the Auxiliary Bishops of the Archdiocese and participating clergy will celebrate Mass at 1 p.m. at East Los Angeles College Stadium, 1301 Cesar Chávez Ave., Monterrey Park. Floats, decorated by Parish groups from different ethnic communities within the Archdiocese, and indigenous dancers, will escort the “Virgen Peregrina” image at the Procession on Dec. 4. The Mass following the procession will feature mariachis, folkloric dances, hymns and poems typical of celebrations in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

Orthodoxy at the Crossroads: What to Expect After the Holy and Great Council
Location | Loyola Marymount University (Ahmanson Auditorium, University Hall 1000): 1 Loyola Marymount University Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90045
2016 witnessed to an epic event in the Orthodox Church. In June, ten of the world’s fourteen autocephalous Orthodox Churches gathered for the Holy and Great Council in Crete and issued documents on marriage, fasting, and relations with the world and non-Orthodox Churches, among other teachings. Controversy and intrigue surrounded the Council, especially its final statement on the status of non-Orthodox Churches: are Catholics, Episcopalians, and Lutherans Christians or heretics? Are they Churches, or schismatic communities? How should Orthodox people relate to other Christians, and what is their responsibility in the world? Bishop Maxim (Vasilijevic) of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America, V. Rev. John Behr, Dean of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in New York, and V. Rev. Archimandrite Cyril Hovorun, Post-doctoral Teaching Fellow of the Huffington Ecumenical Institute, will talk about the Church’s responsibility in interpreting and receiving the teachings of the Council in Crete.
