Dedication of the Sculpture "Jesus the Homeless"

Date: 
Wed, 2013-03-27 14:45 - 15:15

                                    

Regis College has been gifted, through the benefaction of Mr. Peter Benninger, with an extraordinary life-sized bronze sculpture of "Jesus the Homeless", the work of the Canadian sculptuer Timothy Schmalz. Installed recently on the front plaza of the college, the sculpture invites those approaching the main entrance of the college at 100 Wellesley Street West to reflect about their relation with the homeless poor, the most vulnerable of the marginalized people living in our midst.

Please join us on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 as we thank both Mr. Peter Benninger for his generosity and Timothy Schmalz for his creativity with a reception after the 1:30 pm Liturgy. Please gather in the Atrium at 2:45pm.

To further celebrate receiving this wonderful gift, Regis College will host a panel discussion on homelessness in Toronto in April. More information can be found here.
