    Pax et Fides: 

    1. The Marian Colloquium: 

    The colloquium is set for Saturday, May 15, 2004 at St. Paul’s Catholic Student, 1915 University Avenue in Boise, next to BSU.  It is from 12:00 noon to 4:30 p.m., 5:00 p.m. Mass, and Potluck dinner at 6:00 p.m.  It will be eventful because it will explain first Christ, and this His mother, in relation to Him.  It will help explain some of the teachings of the Fathers of the Early Church, and the doctrines.  Bring your questions.  We will try to give answers.  Due to the Colloquium, there will be no regular meeting on Sunday, 16 May 2004 except we may get together for a meal.

    What is a colloquium?  It is a discussion format, whereby the presenters give their respective talks, and the audience is able to engage in questioning and discussion about the topic. 

    There will be a practice at 12:00 noon at St. Paul’s on Saturday, May 8th, 2004.  It will be short, to review the subjects.
