The guest speaker was Fr. John Sheehan S.J. who spoke of both cultural and political forces today attempting to suppress both the Catholic Church and its teaching.  Fr. Sheehan challenged everyone in attendance to become more aware of these threats and that Catholics needed to band together if it is to be stopped.
