The Connection Between Community and Faith

Free lecture at Saint Xavier University

Chicago (Jan. 17, 2006) – Saint Xavier University will host a lecture by Rosemary Bleuher stressing the relationship between faith and life on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 9 a.m. in the Butler Reception Room located at the university’s Chicago campus at 3700 W. 103rd St.

In a lecture titled, “Making Connections: Faith and Life,” Bleuher will lead a discussion on how faith relates to the spirituality found in ordinary, everyday life. As a nationally renowned lecturer on the topic of adult faith and small community formation, Bleuher believes there is a powerful connection between faith, community and the study of Scripture. This connection can provide comfort during difficult times. Bleuher bases her conclusion on being part of a small community for more than 26 years and on her experience in her ministry, adult faith/small community formation, through those years. 

The lecture, which is free and open to the community, is part of a continuing Theology South forum series at Saint Xavier University. For additional information, please contact Saint Xavier University’s Pastoral Ministry Institute at (773) 298- 3900.
