Albert Cardinal Meyer Lecture Series
2014 Meyer Lecture
"Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus"
Sherry Anne Weddell
The Albert Cardinal Meyer Lecture Series began in 1984. It was named after Cardinal Meyer to recognize his significant influence on the Church. He was a man of great intelligence who spoke eloquently for the values promoted by the Church. Since that time a distinguished list of speakers has participated. Recently the guest lecturers have been; Rev. Msgr. Kevin Erwin, S.T.D., Most Rev. Felix Machado, Rev. Kevin FitzGerald, S.J. and Paula M. Stannard, Esq. This past year we were honored to have Most Rev. Arthur Roche. This year we are please to have Sherry Anne Weddell as our guest lecturer.
Sherry Weddell is the author of the best-selling book, Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus. In 1993, she created the Called & Gifted program – the first gifts discernment process designed specifically for Catholics – which is now used throughout the world.
She co-founded the Catherine of Siena Institute in 1997 with Fr. Michael Sweeney, OP, to equip parishes to form lay apostles for their mission to the world. Sherry currently leads CSI's international team of trainers and facilitators who have formed over 90,000 lay, religious, and ordained Catholics in 120 dioceses in the art of evangelizing post-moderns, in gifts and vocational discernment, and in understanding the theology and mission of the laity.
When Sherry is not hanging out in airports, she and her husband enjoy the challenge of turning a Colorado Rocky Mountain "fixer-upper" into a Tuscan garden under the critical eys of their twin cats, Cosmas and Damien.
