Three bishops who are members of the Committee on Doctrine of the United States Catholic Bishops will take part in a private dialogue with representatives of the Catholic Theological Society of America, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, Academy of Catholic Theology, College Theology Society, Black Catholic Theological Symposium, and the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the U.S.

Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore will speak on catechesis and theology at the university level; Aurelie Hagstrom of Providence College, who writes on the theology of the laity and on Mariology, will respond on behalf of the Catholic Theological Society of America.

Bishop John Barres of Allentown will speak on the Catholic university and the new evangelization; Brian Benestad of the University of Scranton, an expert on Catholic social doctrine, will respond on behalf of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, which is known for its fidelity to Catholic teaching.
