George Weigel to speak at University of Rochester

First Lecture in the Catholic Newman Community's Faith in America Series, Marking the 50th Anniversary of Catholic Chaplaincy at the University of Rochester

WHO: George Weigel, noted author and NBC News Vatican analyst, will deliver the lecture 21st-Century Catholics in an Unfamiliar America as a part of the 2013-2014 Faith in America lecture series, sponsored by the Catholic Newman Community. Weigel's lecture will explore challenges to Catholicism in 21st-Century America—a newly aggressive secularism, threats to religious freedom, confusions within the Church itself—and suggest how Catholics can meet those challenges by embracing the evangelical vocation into which they were baptized.

TIME, DATE, PLACE: 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, Interfaith Chapel on the University of Rochester's River Campus. The lecture is free and open to the public; visitors to the River Campus can park for free in most lots after 7 p.m.  More information here.
