Weekly Spiritual Life Council meeting

Exploring and Discussing Instances of Modern Interfaith Cooperation

At SLC this week we will be exploring and discussing contemporary instances of interfaith cooperation. We always hear about Gandhi and King & Heschel as interfaith leaders- but who is a leader today? What are the movements that engage values today? WHY IS THIS WORK SO IMPORTANT FOR OUR GENERATION?

 

Bernardin Lecture: Father Jack Wall

“Building Community in a Diverse Society”

Wednesday March 2, 7:30 p.m. in the Founders Lounge

Father Wall is one of the most energetic and visionary priests of the Archdiocese of Chicago. As pastor of Old Saint Patrick’s Church, he transformed a moribund West Loop parish with four active members into a vibrant center of Catholic life, where more than 3,000 communicants attend Mass each Sunday. Today, as the leader of Catholic Extension, Father Wall works to strengthen the church’s life and ministry internationally, in dioceses that need outside support to continue their work. His goal is to “build faith, inspire hope and ignite change.”

This is an event of the Chaplain’s Office and “Still Speaking: Conversations on Faith” series.
