New This Week:


Loyola Marymount University and Mount Saint Mary's University:  "Vatican II at 50 Symposium" with Dr. Peter C. Phan, Thursday, October 22, at L.M.U.

Loyola Marymount University and Mount Saint Mary's University are cosponsoring a series of lectures and workshops commemorating the 50th anniversary of Vatican II.

It will be on Thursday, October 22, at 7:00 p.m., in University Hall on the campus of Loyola Marymount University.  In the last fifty years, since the end of Vatican II (1962-65), migration has become a global phenomenon and a pressing international issue.  Migration has also radically changed the face of the Catholic Church, not least in the U.S., and demands a new pastoral ministry.  Peter C. Phan, Ph.D. will deliver the keynote lecture. A public question-and-answer period will follow with a light dessert reception.  This series is being presented jointly by Loyola Marymount University and Mount St. Mary's University.  This event is free and open to the public.  It will also be broadcast live on the Web at:
