Theology professor to present talk on trekking Saint Paul from Jerusalem to Rome

Saint Joseph’s College celebrates its 100th Anniversary with the fifth of its Centennial Lecture Series on Tuesday, October 23. Dr. Steve Bridge, a member of the theology faculty at the college, will give a talk titled “Trekking Saint Paul from Jerusalem to Rome.”

Relive exciting highlights and unexpected adventures of the three-year quest to retrace the intrepid apostle Saint Paul. This lively multimedia presentation will feature stories, photographs, video and artifacts from some of the most sacred, exotic, and intriguing sites of the Holy Lands – as well as foods and drinks from these regions.

The talk begins at 7 p.m., and is part of the “Faculty After Hours Centennial Lecture Series” celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Saint Joseph’s College. The series is free and open to the public. All lectures are held at the Viola George Auditorium of Harold Alfond Hall at the Standish campus.

A 30-minute question-and-answer period follows the presentation, and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 893-7720.
