Planning to be on Long Island this weekend? Stop by and say hello to some Patheosians!

The Society of Catholic Social Scientists is holding its 20th annual conference on Long Island Friday and Saturday, and some familiar names will be there, including Your Humble Blogger.

Friday morning, I’ll be moderating a panel  — “And God Said ‘Tweet’: New Media and the New Evangelization” — that will include our own Marc Barnes and Pat Gohn, along with some familiar names like Patrick Archbold (“Creative Minority Report”), Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, Gary Jansen and Claudia Volkman.

Saturday afternoon, I’ll also be participating in a panel: “Catholic Journalists: Getting Work and Helping the Church Change the World,” which will feature people a lot more interesting than me, including Tom Wehner, from the National Catholic Register, several contributors from Long Island Catholic, and Jim Krug, from the Catholic League.

As if that weren’t enough, the two-day event will also feature workshops and talks by Patheos’ own Lisa Mladinich, plus Russell Shaw, Cardinal Edward Egan, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, S.V., Ph.D., William Donohue, Bishop William Murphy, and SCADS of other people.

Check out the full schedule here—and drop by if you’re in the nabe!
