Christendom College President Dr. Timothy O’Donnell and his wife, Cathy, will speak on the need to strengthen the family in a special Rome Reports meeting, beginning at 11:00 a.m. on January 27.
The O’Donnells, parents of nine, will join Helen Alvare, professor of law at George Mason University, for the meeting, which will be moderated by journalist and friend of Christendom Sean-Patrick Lovett. The meeting comes in the wake of Pope Francis’ announcement of a Year of the Family, where all Catholics are encouraged to focus on strengthening their families in the face of numerous challenges confronting society today.
O’Donnell is a consultor to the Pontifical Council for the Family, after being appointed to the position by Pope St. John Paul II in 2002.
The meetings, which usually have the participation of authorities from the Vatican Curia, cardinals, and more, will be available to subscribers at romereports.tv.
