Cultural bonanza: Mark your calendars, Chicago!

Aid for Women, for 39 years an incredibly effective provider of services to women in crisis pregnancies here in Chicagoland, just announced its Benefit Dinner, and you want to be there, even if I can't make it (I'll be in Rome, God willing).

The event will be at the Union League Club in downtown Chicago on Sept. 19. The keynote speaker is Father Robert Barron. As if that were not enough, the honoree of the evening is Barbara Nicolosi. That's right: two brilliant, articulate, spot-on culture watchers offering an intelligent and witty Catholic perspective on the issues. Please get your reservation in early.

If you can't make it to the dinner, please consider donating to Aid for Women.  They take no federal funding, as that would put restrictions on the spiritual formation they offer. Right now they especially need used cars in working condition to help the women in residence at Heather's House get to and from doctor's appointments, classes and work. You can also contribute items to their Baby Registry at (registry # 46439641).
