Catholic Lecture Series
The Catholic Lecture Series was created to further St. John’s strategic objective of visibly embedding its Catholic and Vincentian mission in the academic life of the University.
The Eighth Annual Lecture will be held on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 2 p.m. during the Vincentian Convocation in St. Thomas More Church. The Most Rev. Robert W. McElroy, Bishop of San Diego, will be the speaker. In the light of Pope Francis's encyclical Laudato Si, the Bishop plans to explore the pathway that Pope Francis is making toward outlining a global common good in the areas of economic justice, environmental justice, and peace.
Most Rev. Robert W. McElroy is the sixth Bishop of San Diego, CA. He holds a licentiate in theology from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, a doctorate in moral theology from the Gregorian University and a doctorate in political science from Stanford. He is the author of two books: The Search for an American Public Theology and Morality and American Foreign Policy
