Niagara Foundation is pleased to host professor Dr. Micheal Murphy, Director of the Catholic Studies and Associate Director of Loyola University’s Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage, to speak on “Mercy and Reconciliation in Post-Election America”.
With the elections taking place on November 9th and the Catholic “Jubilee Year of Mercy” ending its ceremonies that occur between Nov. 13-20, this is a particularly timely and relevant discussion on the need for intercultural, interfaith processes of mercy and reconciliation after a divisive election season.
Lunch will be served.
