Father Schall's 'last lecture'—don't miss it!

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Dec 03, 2012

If you live in or around Washington, DC—or can get there this Friday evening—don’t miss this event:

Father James Schall will speak on “The Final Gladness,” in his “last lecture at Georgetown” on Friday, Dec. 7, at 5:00 pm in Gaston Hall.

If you’re Catholic and you read, you’re probably familiar with Father Schall: the author of 30+ books, whose essays and reviews have appeared in virtually every respectable Catholic journal. Personable as well as prolific, Father Schall has been educating students at Georgetown since 1977. This year he is retiring from teaching, and his many devoted students have joined to give him the honor that Georgetown, as an institution, has failed to accord him.

If you do plan to attend, get there early. Gaston Hall holds about 600; it should be packed.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    What a treasure Fr. James's writings have been; what a gift to the Church.
