This is the space where I normally list upcoming speaking dates where I will be spreading the message of My Peace I Give You. Right now, not counting a chastity talk in New Jersey (December 14 at St. Michael's Ukrainian Catholic Church) I don't have any talks in the United States until mid-March , but I am thrilled to be speaking next week in Slovakia, where the Slovak-language edition of My Peace I Give You comes out this week. Here are the dates; click the links for more information:
November 26: "Quo Vadis," Bratislava. This will be a celebration for the official launching of the book. 6 p.m.
November 27: Seminary of Badín, Banska Bystrica, 7 p.m.
November 28: "Congregacia Jesu," Prešov, 7 p.m.
November 30: Parish of Klokočina, Nitra, 7:30 p.m.
I will have more European dates in late February and early March, speaking about My Peace I Give You for several days in Scotland and, on March 7, in London. Check back here for details as the date gets closer.
If you are interested in hosting me for a talk, or would just like to hear the message I share, here is a link to download a recording of the talk I gave October 20 at Jesus the Divine Word Parish in my home Archdiocese of Washington: "What the Saints Can Teach Us About Purification of Memory." Contact me through the e-mail address listed at the bottom of my home page, dawneden.com.
P.S. My speaking and writing is in addition to my full-time graduate studies at a pontifical faculty of theology. Once I earn my sacred-theology doctorate, I hope to teach at a Catholic college. In the meantime, I am living primarily on student loans and the generosity of people who wish to support my studies and apostolate.
Because I wish to give myself fully to serving the Church, my speaking apostolate is not limited to paid talks. Both my Slovakia tour and my Scotland tour are mission trips, where I am giving unpaid talks in hope of helping those who have suffered the wounds of abuse find healing in Christ. When I finish my studies, I likewise want to go wherever I will be most needed to teach the faith, whether in a developed country or an underdeveloped one. This is my vocation. I have made a personal consecration of my celibacy to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in hope of being called to make a permanent consecration to my diocesan bishop. My life is in God's hands.
All of which is to say: if you have benefited from my writing or speaking, please consider making a donation so that I may keep spreading the message of healing sexual wounds with the help of the saints. Thank you and God bless you.
