On Monday, November 18, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology will present Dermot Quinn, Ph.D., in a presentation of "South America and the New Evangelization." This presentation will mark the final month of the Year of Faith and will be one of the first lectures to be presented in the newly renovated Chapel of the Good Shepherd, Lewis Hall. The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a celebratory reception in the Seminary's refectory.
Preregistration is strongly encouraged. R.S.V.P. to Veronica Haegele at Veronica.Haegele@student.shu.edu.
Dr. Quinn received his bachelor's degree from Trinity College in Dublin and his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford. Currently, he is a professor and the director of graduate studies in the Department of History at Seton Hall University. His research interests include Catholic history, Irish-American history, and the history of Seton Hall University, and he is a published author in such areas. His works have been published internationally in both the United States and United Kingdom.
The Year of Faith was declared by Pope Benedict XVI as a "summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the world” (Porta fidei 6) and is linked to the New Evangelization as a common "call of conversion to Catholics to deepen their relationship with Christ and share in that with others," according to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
