Faith and Public Service: A Discussion on Pope Francis' Address to Congress

Faith and Public Service: A Discussion on Pope Francis

In anticipation of our local, state, and national elections you are invited to attend a discussion on Pope Francis’ 2015 address to Congress. During his historic and unprecedented address, the pope highlighted four American dreamers: Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day, and Thomas Merton. These prominent American voices advanced freedom, racial inclusion, worker’s rights, and interreligious dialogue. Come join us for an evening of stimulating discussion on the political implications of Christian faith in the construction of the common good.

Thursday, September 15, 2016, 7:00 pm-8:30 pm.
