Going Where You are Needed But Not Necessarily Loved


Location: Geddes Hall, Coffee House

This panel will present the overseas experiences of life-long missionaries and discuss the transformations that missionary efforts have undergone and the challenges they now face. The presenters will comment on their experiences from Africa and the highlands of South America. A member of the Notre Dame Holy Cross community will address the role of lay people in mission.

A question and answer session will follow, and lunch will be served.
