Past Events

Albertus Magnus Lecture 2016


November 17, 2016

This presentation explored some of the major themes of Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis’ groundbreaking message on the environment.  We examined, especially, the notion of "integral ecology" and Pope Francis’ linking of social and environmental degradation.  The program also demonstrated how the U.S. Catholic community is responding to the challenges set out in Laudato Si'. Presented by Dan Misleh, founding executive director of the Catholic Climate Covenant based in Washington D.C., an organization that raises awareness and advocates for the implementation of Catholic social teaching on ecology.

Eid Celebration

Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice), one of the most important Islamic holidays, occurs across the Islamic world at the same time as the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The event commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his own son, Ismael, as a way of demonstrating his submission to God.
