The Catholic Newman Community at the University of Rochester and the Newman Chair of Catholic Studies is proud to host George Weigel, the definitive biographer of Pope John Paul II and critically acclaimed author of over 15 books, who will give the John Henry Cardinal Newman Lecture on December 5th at 7:30pm at the University of Rochester’s Interfaith Chapel. 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. The Interfaith Chapel is handicap accessible and can be found at 320 Wilson Blvd in Rochester. Free parking is available.
