A couple of months ago I advertised a great Catholic event for Birmingham: Scott Hahn was coming to town. I went to that luncheon, and it was excellent. The place was packed.
Today I received news that such quarterly luncheons will begin next month in Huntsville also! The first one will feature the excellent speaker, Patrick Madrid.
The email that I received today from John Martignoni (the organizer) follows. (edited)

For all of you in North Alabama, this is a reminder about the first ever Catholic Quarterly Luncheon to be held in Huntsville, on Tuesday, September 16, from 11:30am – 1:00pm. The event will take place at the Jackson Center, at 6001 Moquin Drive in Research Park. Our speaker will be Patrick Madrid , one of the most popular Catholic authors and speakers in the country. He is also an EWTN television and radio host, popular blogger, and internationally-known evangelist and apologist. His topic will be: “Why Be Catholic?” which is based on his new book of the same title.
For many years I’ve been asked, “John, you organize all of these events in Birmingham, what about us up here in Huntsville?” Well, I’ve heard you and this is my attempt to respond to your requests. My plan is to bring in the best Catholic speakers out there today to Huntsville – one every three months. I hope you will join us for this first one and I hope you will tell your friends about this event and ask them to come along. (For a preview of this talk, check out this online article.)
The cost of the luncheon is $27.50. To reserve your spot, you can pay online at:
http://www.biblechristiansociety.com/donations – with a credit card or via PayPal (when you make a $27.50 “donation” or some multiple thereof, I will know it’s for the luncheon); or you can mail a check to:
Bible Christian Society, PO Box 424, Pleasant Grove, AL 35127
(When you pay online, you will receive an email acknowledging your reservation. If you send in a check, and would like an acknowledgment, please include an email address.)
Seating is limited to 200 people, first come first served, so the sooner you sign up, the better. We’ve already received a number of reservations and the announcement for the luncheon is going to appear in the One Voice this weekend, so you might want to get in there while you can. And, just so you know, if you pay now and something comes along that will cause you to miss the luncheon, you have until 48 hours before the luncheon to notify me and receive a full refund. Finally, we will be unable to accommodate walk-ups the day of the luncheon, so you need to make your reservation beforehand.
This is going to be a great event…you don’t want to miss it!
