Calling All Canadians....

Anyone in or around southwestern Ontario this weekend might want to take advantage of a special event at St Jerome's University in Waterloo.

In a rare public appearance outside the the city of Rome, Robert Mickens, The Tablet's intrepid hand in the Eternal City, will be taking part in a conference at St Jerome's on Catholics in Public Life. Che gioia -- and che invidia!

Also present will be Paul Baumann, editor of Commonweal, and a couple Canadian journos.

It seems that registration for the program, which'll be held tomorrow and Saturday, closed last week. But, if you're game and in the area, just show up and see what happens. You'll be happy you did.
