Fessahaye Mebrahtu 'A Pastor and Bishop Perry' September 7th 2018

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is September 7th.

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). The celebrant will be Fr. Paul Hartmann. 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).

In preparation for the upcoming Red Mass and Dinner on October 4th, where Bishop Perry will join us as our keynote speaker, our September First Friday speaker is Fessahaye Mebrahtu. He will be speaking on his experience with Bishop Perry during his years as a pastor. He previously worked for Bishop Perry at All Saints Catholic Church as the Youth Program Director and the Christian Formation Director. Fessahaye has a Masters of Theology with a Black Studies Concentration, and a Masters of Arts and Divinity from the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.

Limited complimentary visitor parking is available in the Eckstein Hall underground parking structure, 11th Street level, between Wisconsin Avenue and Clybourn Street. The parking system that requires two tickets to exit. Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, follow signs to the elevator. Take the elevator to the main floor, which opens to the foyer, and go to the Welcome Desk to get your "chaser" ticket so that you will not have to pay for parking when exiting. In other words, for free parking, when you exit you will need both the ticket you pulled when you entered and the "chaser" ticket the Welcome Desk gave you.
