We regret to inform you that the 2014 Chancellor’s Lecture has been cancelled. Our lecturer, driving from Hartford, was able to reach Syracuse by Wednesday evening but due to poor road conditions in Upstate New York was unable to proceed on to Toronto today. He sends his deep regrets. The lecture, schedules permitting, may be re-scheduled for late February or early March 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused.
Frank G. Kirkpatrick will present the 2014 Chancellor’s Lecture at Regis College on Friday, November 21, 2014 at 7:30 pm in St. Joseph’s Chapel.
Dr. Frank G. Kirkpatrick, Ellsworth Morton Tracy Lecturer in Religion and Professor of Religion at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, will speak on "The God of History and the God of Mystery: Laying the Foundations for Building Community." He will develop the thesis that the mystery of God can best be preserved in a view of God as an active agent in history whose acts lay the foundation for the building of community. The mystery of God is best understood as the mystery ingredient in some way in all free and intentional persons, not the mystery of sheer incomprehensibility or the transcendence of all human understanding.
This event is free. All are welcome. Lecture will take place in St. Joseph Chapel, Regis College. Seating is limited. Please pre-register by clicking here or calling 416-922-5474 x221.
