Cultural Affairs presentation rescheduled for Feb. 19

Due to the anticipated inclement weather, the Cultural Affairs Lecture Series event on February 5 has been moved to February 19. The presentation, given by Saint Joseph’s College’s professor of theology Dr. Daniel P. Sheridan, is titled, “Muslim-Catholic Dialogue and the Challenge of America’s Polity, Values, and Culture.”

Dr. Sheridan’s presentation addresses how Catholics and Muslims in Western Europe and North America face similar issues as the transcendent claims of their faiths are called into question. United in dialogue, Dr. Sheridan says, the two faiths can share how they live with and thrive in a culture of secular polity.

The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. in Saint Joseph’s College’s Viola George Auditorium, in Harold Alfond Hall. The event is free and open to the public.  

The Cultural Affairs Series continues with two additional events:

—March 19, “All Standing: The True Story of Hunger, Rebellion, and Survival Aboard the Jeanie Johnston,” with author Kathryn Miles;

—March 31, “Baseball: The Writers’ Sport,” with Saint Joseph’s professor of English Dr. Edward Rielly.

All Cultural Affairs Series events take place at 6:30 p.m. in Saint Joseph’s College’s Viola George Auditorium, in Harold Alfond Hall, unless otherwise noted.
