Vatican II: a year-long look

Beginning in October 2012 — the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council — and continuing into September 2013, St. Vincent’s will be devoting our formational time and energy to re-discovering the treasures of Vatican II. This page will give you all of the resources that we are offering to our community.


Our first two presentations were given by Fr. Kevin McCracken, CM; Fr. Kevin is a Vincentian priest and is a professor of Theology at St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo, CA. His presentations were:

In January 2013, Msgr. Jim Telthorst will tell us about developments in the years since Vatican II.

During Lent 2013, we will look at the insights and implications of Lumen Gentium — The Church finally opened its windows and let some fresh air in.

Throughout the Easter Season, we will look at the revolutionary ideas in Gaudium Et Spes: The Church in the Modern World.
