Rev. Dr. John Coleman, S.J. Engages with the Question: What Do You Think Has Been the Most Important Event for the American Catholic Church in the Twentieth Century?
Rev. John Coleman states that the most important religious event for world Catholicism in the twentieth century is the Second Vatican Council. However, he then mentions that some believe that for the American Catholic Church, the election of John F. Kennedy is the most important religious event in the twentieth century, because that marks the moment when Catholics had fully assimilated into American culture. He discusses these two important events and their effects on the American Catholic Church.
