The public is invited to a free lecture by Dr. Terrence Rynne on Sunday, July 18, at the Nazareth Motherhouse Auditorium.

Dr. Rynne will present a reflection based on his latest book “Gandhi & Jesus: The Saving Power of Nonviolence.”

Dr. Rynne is the founder of the Marquette University Center for Peacemaking.

He has served as a parish priest in the Archdiocese of Chicago, on the faculty of the Mundelein Seminary in Illinois and later as a hospital administrator. He retired as founder and president of Rynne Marketing Group, a nationally recognized consulting firm that has served more that 600 leading hospitals and health care organizations, to earn a Ph.D. in theology and pursue his passion for peace.

The Nazareth Motherhouse is the home of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia. Entrance to the auditorium is through the main doors on the west side of the building.

The program is part of the Concordia Year of Peace, and is the latest in a number of activities dedicated to peace and nonviolence.
