with Fr. Jim Heft, S.M.
Friday, February 19th at 7:00 p.m. PST
VIA ZOOM ONLY
Part of Holy Family’s Friday Lenten “Lucis” Speaker Series
“Lucis” means “light” and comes from the Latin verb “lucere” meaning “to shine”.
Each Friday during Lent, Holy Family will have a powerful and enlightening presentation by well-known national and local speakers.
Over the past year, COVID has made us all more aware of how much we need the presence and touch of loved ones. It has also made us more aware of the fragility of life. And it has also made some of us think more about aging and death. What kinds of thoughts invade our minds when we think about aging and dying? How do we respond to aging and dying as Catholic Christians?
A longtime friend of Holy Family Parish, Fr. Jim is the Alton Brooks Professor of Religion at the University of Southern California and the Founder and President Emeritus of the Institute of Advanced Catholic Studies at USC. An expert in Catholic doctrine who has authored and edited numerous books and articles, he served for 30 years as chair of the theology department, provost and chancellor of the University of Dayton. In 2011, Fr. Jim was the recipient of Theodore Hesburgh Award for Leadership Excellence, the oldest honor awarded by the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities.
