January 2017 Webinar – Poisoning the Wells

We start off the New Year with an exciting and thought-provoking presentation by Fr. Dave Pettingill.  His presentation will discuss the following points:
1. The intent of the Second Vatican Council regarding Liturgy;
2. The “Reform of the Reform;”
3. The present state of the union;
4. Suggestions about how ACLS’s expertise can be employed to further the Second Vatican Council’s viewpoint, now that Pope Francis has terminated the Reform of the Reform.

fr-pettingillOur presenter,  Rev. David Pettingill, is a retired priest of the San Francisco archdiocese who is still active in retreat work and teaching courses on the council for lay ecclesial ministers. Ordained just months before the opening of the Second Vatican Council, Fr. Dave since spent 22 years in education, first at the high school level and later as Dean of Students and professor of Homiletics, Liturgical Celebration and Scripture at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park. He has since served in a variety of pastoral and leadership roles in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, including Director of the Deacon Formation Program for the last 5 years before retiring in 2007.
