Doctor and Survivor of the Atomic Bomb; We will share the
inspiring story of this Japanese man who converted from
Buddhism to Catholicism through his study of history. He
went on to marry and practice medicine, well known for both
his expertise and his compassion for the sick in Nagasaki.

Pope Francis and the Francis Effect:
From Admiration to Imitation
With his energetic style and unique pastoral vantage point,
Pope Francis is popular within and outside the Church, but he
also challenges us as Christian disciples. How do we move
from admiration of him and his “style” to imitation? That’s
the key question this presentation seeks to explore!
Thursday, October 23, 6:30 – 8 p.m; Presenter: Fr. Tim
Shillcox, O. Praem; Cost: Free will offering (suggested
donation $5); Registration appreciated
The Conrad J. Kratz, O. Praem., Abbey Lecture Series –
Enkindling Hope: A Calling of the Church in an Age of Soft
Despair
Christianity is quintessentially a religion of hope because it
exultantly proclaims that in God we meet a love that no darkness or evil can ever defeat, a love so faithfully resilient that it
never dies. And yet, of the three theological virtues, hope is
the most neglected and overlooked. This presentation will
address the meaning and preciousness of hope, things that
threaten hope, what hope asks of us, and why we should never hope for anything less than what God’s love desires for us.
Thursday, October 30, 6:30 – 8 p.m., with reception to
follow; Presenter: Dr. Paul Wadell, Professor of Religious
Studies, St. Norbert College; Cost: Free will offering
(suggested donation $5); Registration required by October 27
