Niagara University Holds Panel Discussion On Pope Francis

In Niagara News, by , on September 30th, 2013

A celebration of Niagara University’s Catholic and Vincentian heritage in 2013 wouldn’t be complete without a discussion of Pope Francis, the Argentinian who was chosen as the 266th pontiff of the Catholic Church in March.

That conversation occurred Wednesday afternoon – perhaps appropriately at the midway point ofVincentian Heritage Week – in the Gallagher Center’s Multi-Purpose Room. Approximately 75 students, employees and members of the local community participated in the “mission panel” discussion that was led by the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., NU president, the Rev. John Gouldrick, C.M., associate vice president for mission, and Dr. Robert St. Hilaire, assistant professor of religious studies.
