Michael Mazza 'Canon Law, Civil Law, and the Current Crisis in the Church' September 6th 2019

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is September 6th.

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 the Very Rev. 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 $5.00).

STMLS alum Michael Mazza will be joining us to discuss insights about the overlap between the civil and canonical law based on his first year of canon law studies in Rome, Italy. He titles his talk "Canon Law, Civil Law, and the Current Crisis in the Church." This is not only a timely topic, but Michael will be drawing on his experience studying in Italy, which will add an interesting global dimension.

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.

Our Red Mass is coming up on Thursday, October 3rd. We will begin with Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist at 5:30 pm, followed by cocktails and dinner at the Wisconsin Club. Shuttle service will be available from the Wisconsin Club to and from Mass. A link from Eventbrite will be circulated later this week for the purchase of individual tickets. Thank you to those who have already committed to purchasing tables. To purchase a table sponsorship, please reply to this email (but please do not "reply all").
