Registration advised for John Allen lecture on Sept. 11

Because a strong turnout is expected from both the SXU community and local Catholic parishes, students, staff, faculty and teachers bringing classes are encouraged to register for “Faith and the ‘Francis Effect’: What a New Pope Means for the Catholic Future.”

That lecture, set for Wed., Sept. 11, at 6:30 p.m. will be held in McGuire Hall unless registrations suggest the need to move to a larger venue. People who register will have assured seating if attendance surpasses room capacity.

Faculty bringing a class can register for an anticipated number of students without having to enter names.  At the event, the registering faculty member will be given that number of reserved seating tokens to give to students from his/her class.

This lecture, which is free and open to the public, is being sponsored by SXU’s Office for University Mission and Ministry and the archdiocese’s Vicariate V Ministry Commission.  For more information, contact UMM at (773) 298-3900 or
