Two former ordained Protestant ministers who now serve in the Catholic Church will discuss issues in the Catholic faith during a May 19 conference at St. Charles Borromeo Parish Center, located at 3003 Dewey Ave. in Greece.

Father Scott Caton, who was ordained in June 2011, will lead the Interactive Conference on Catholicism with William Gent, adult religious-education director at Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Indialantic, Fla. The two men will engage in conversation about the Catholic Church and important topics in their own faith journeys, and conference participants are invited to listen in on the discussion and ask follow-up questions.

Gent and Father Caton, who teaches history at Roberts Wesleyan College in Chili and assists at several diocesan parishes, will discuss such topics as the Protestant Reformation, practical issues of biblical interpretation, the meaning of the sacraments, and the continuity and stability of Catholicism and Protestantism over time.

The conference, which is sponsored by the Eastern Greece/Charlotte Catholic Churches, is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
