In their main role as one of 14 married couples from around the world selected to serve as auditors for the synod, the Heinzens will observe all of the general assembly sessions, and participate in group discussions with the English-speaking delegates.
“During the general assemblies, we will be listening and observing,” said Alice Heinzen. “We may only speak during these sessions if requested. Our input will mainly be shared during the small discussion groups.”
In July, Alice Heinzen replaced her husband as director of the Office for Marriage & Family Life of the Diocese of La Crosse, when he became president of McDonell Catholic Schools, Chippewa Falls. Her previous position was as diocesan Natural Family Planning coordinator.
Someone emailed me and asked if I knew what the Heinzen's think of the "Kasper Proposal" and the answer is I have no idea. But really the proposal is more of a Canon Law question I guess anyway. The Heizens will be blogging about their experience so I assume you could post a comment there to ask.
