Sisters of Mercy Institute Justice Team Leader to Address Ecology, Racism, Nonviolence, Immigration and Women's Issues in Des Moines Thursday, January 22 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Mercy College

January 22, 2015

The second session of the Mercy College 2015 Faith & Healing Speaker series is scheduled for next Thursday, Jan. 22, from 6-7:30 pm in the Sullivan Center — Wellmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Iowa Lecture Hall of the Mercy College campus in Downtown Des Moines. Our presenter for the evening will be Marianne Comfort, Education Coordinator for the Sisters of Mercy Institute Justice Team. She will be presenting on the five critical concerns (i.e., ecology, racism, nonviolence, immigration and women’s issues) of the Sisters of Mercy, and how these concerns intersect with our mission as a College, as well as with the unique calling of healthcare professionals.

 For insight as to what Marianne will be addressing, please check out her contribution to the Mercy College blog.

This event will present an excellent opportunity to dialogue as a community about how Mercy college can best carry on the legacy of its founders. The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
