President's Letter

Dear Members,

We have some exciting events coming over the next few weeks.  First up we have partnered with the St. Thomas Moore Society of San Francisco to host a discussion in the FiDi examining the Pope's recent commentary on allowing marriage within the priesthood.  We are very lucky to have Father John Coleman, S.J. joining us to lead the discussion.  Fr. Coleman has an extensive background in theology research and education and is a tremendous resource for us to have.  Also participating will be our very own Phil Kearney.

Speaking of Phil, you might have had the chance to catch him at last year's Los Gatos Writers Festival talking about his experiences prosecuting war crimes in Kosovo.  It was a thrilling topic, one of many presented at the festival.  The writer's festival returns to Los Gatos this year October 5th through October 8th.  The IABA will once again be presenting a session.  This year we will have attorney Mark Hull come to discuss his book Masquerade.  This captivating true tale of survival, deceit, and espionage is incredibly rich and complex.  Be sure to join us for this presentation at 2 PM, October 6th at CB Hannegans in Los Gatos.

It is with regret that I must also inform our membership that due to unforeseen circumstances, this year's softball competition with the Italian Bar Association has been cancelled.  This is truly a great event and we have every intention of continuing the tradition in the future.

A Conversation on Catholic Priest Marriage in the Age of Pope Francis

2017 Writers Festival - Los Gatos

October 5 through October 8

The annual festival brings together Irish, local and international writers, artists and audiences at unique venues in the charming town of Los Gatos


October 6

Phyllis Ursula James. Nora Ó Mara. Róisín Ni Mheara. Like her name, the life of Rosaleen James changed many times as she followed a convoluted path from abandoned child, to foster daughter of an aristocratic British family, to traitor during World War II, to her emergence as an Irish citizen.

Learn how this Irish imposter became close to writer Francis Stuart, whose years in Nazi Germany led to a great deal of controversy.
