Global economy, evils discussed at town’s universities this week

Fairfield University continues its fall programs with its 17th Annual Christopher F. Mooney, S.J. Lecture in Theology, Religion and Society on Wednesday night. Dr. Lisa Sowle Cahill, The J. Donald Monan Professor of Theology at Boston College, will speak at the Dolan School of Business at 8 p.m. In a talk entitled, “Global Evils or the Common Good: Is There Any Hope?” Cahill will explore the daunting task of maintaining hope and the importance of Catholic Social Teaching in the face of a discouraging reality. Weaving in stories from her trips to Colombia and Burundi, Cahill will discuss social justice, her work with the Catholic Peacebuilding Network, and the Letters of St. Paul. “Real hope can come from engaging in our own circumstances,” she said. The event coincides with the University’s Year of Global Citizenship, a time for students, staff and faculty to consider their place in the world and how they can make it a better place.
