This month’s speaker is Dr. Therese Novotny, of the Marquette University English Department. Since 2009, she has volunteered as Co-Leader for the Children’s Bible and Faith Sharing Group. This ministry serves teens at the Juvenile Detention Center, housed in the Vel Phillips Juvenile Justice Center. To date, this group has met with thousands of teens to share scripture, prayer, and faith experiences. Their mission is to restore dignity and hope to those who are in prison. They are messengers of hope and reconciliation to teens. Therese is a member of St. Mary’s Visitation Parish. She lives in Wauwatosa, where she and her husband, John, have raised their six children.
Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 A.M. in the Chapel of St. Edmund Campion, located on the 4th floor of Eckstein Hall (Marquette University Law School). Mass will be followed by our meeting and discussion from 8:00-9:00 A.M., which includes a continental breakfast (suggested donation $4.00). Parking is available in the Eckstein Hall underground parking structure. (Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, take the elevator to main floor, which opens to the foyer, and go to the welcome desk to get your parking ticket validated.)
