Neuhaus, social critic, to speak here
The Rev. Richard Neuhaus, who has criticized churches for adopting secular liberalism, will be the keynote speaker during a program on social responsibility at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Charles and Saratoga streets.
The program, organized as part of the Episcopal Church's tricentennial celebration, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. April 24.
Father Neuhaus, recently ordained as a Roman Catholic priest after many years as a Lutheran pastor, is director of the Institute on Religion in Public Life. He also is the author of several books, including "The Naked Public Square" in 1984, which criticized mainline churches for a move away from traditional Christian theology.
He also has written extensively for various periodicals, including Harper's and Commentary.
Father Neuhaus graduated from Concordia Seminary and was pastor of an inner-city Lutheran church in New York City. Since 1978, he has been writing and speaking on social issues.
An open discussion is scheduled after Father Neuhaus' address at St. Paul's.
