Andre Lesperance "The Evangelical Catholic" February 7th

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is February 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 the Rev. Brad Krawczyk. 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).

Our guest this month will be Andre Lesperance, Senior Ministry Consultant with The Evangelical Catholic. He has worked in Catholic ministry and education since 2003 and holds a Master's Degree in theology from Marquette University. Mr. Lesperance will be discussing his work with the Evangelical Catholic, including a new book he has just published. We hope you will be able to join us. Many thanks to President-Elect John Herbers for inviting Mr. Lesperance to speak with us.

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.

The Society will hold its annual meeting on Thursday, February 20th. Mass will be held at 5:15 pm at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in the daily Mass chapel. The annual meeting will be held thereafter at Flannery's on Cathedral Square (425 East Wells Street). Appetizers will be served, with cash bar available. The cost of attending the annual meeting is $20, which goes to defer the cost of the food. Checks can be made out to the St. Thomas More Lawyers Society. Cash will also be accepted on site.

At the annual meeting, the slate of officers and new Board of Governors will be elected and there will be discussion of events for the upcoming year, including an upcoming Morning of Reflection during Lent. We hope to see you there. So that we can order an appropriate amount of food, please reply to this email if you plan to attend the annual meeting.
