FREE TALK FOCUSES ON WAGING PEACE IN OUR TIMES
LA CROSSE, Wis.— "Blessed are the Peacemakers" is the title of a free evening event at the Viterbo University San Damiano Chapel on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7:30 p.m.
Earl Madary and Tom Thibodeau, religious studies professors at Viterbo University, will share this very special message during an evening filled with story, song, poetry, and prayer centered on keeping and waging peace. The talk is free and open to the public and is part of Viterbo’s St. Rose Lecture series.
Inspired by St. Rose of Viterbo, whose feast day was Sept. 4, this series was begun last year to establish a dialogue on contemporary Catholic issues. St. Rose, for whom the St. Rose Convent in La Crosse was named, was a contemporary of St. Clare of Assisi and a follower of the values espoused by St. Francis of Assisi.
