I've got a bit of a guilt complex about using In Umbris Sancti Petri as a launchpad for other projects but...
...for those who haven't, please consider checking out the work being done over at ProLife ProPatria. If you like what you read here, you will most certainly enjoy the discussions there!
Since founding ProLife ProPatria about one year ago, Matthew Barry and I—along with a whole new team of writers, editors and consultants—have been plugging away, making our website as worthwhile and informative as possible. And now, finally, after a year of hard work, we think we're onto something big.
In the beginning of 2010, we'll be making a push to incorporate ProLife ProPatria as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. This will help us to solidify our structure, bring on-board even more top-notch authors and editors, and provide the basis for financial stability over the next years.
Currently, we are looking for anyone who might be able to offer valuable connections (individuals, companies, dioceses, universities, etc.) that might help us to get off the ground in a real way, and maybe even form long-lasting partnerships in this important field of bioethics and Catholic social theory.
Over the last month, In Umbris Sancti Petri has seen "hits" from viewers around the globe—from 62 countries, and 36 states. I hope that you all who've been reading these pages will consider supporting an even greater project; and that you'll pass the word on to friends and colleagues who may also be interested.
For now, I'll do my best to keep things up-to-date here (as well as there).
Oh, and did I mention that I'm getting married in a month?!
