Joan Rosenhauer, associate director of justice, peace and human development at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, will address “The Challenges of Faithful Citizenship” at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 11 at Gonzaga University's Cataldo Hall Globe Room.
The lecture, which is free of charge and open to the public, is part of Gonzaga’s popular Catholicism for a New Millennium Lecture series. Cataldo Hall is located directly north St. Aloysius Church, across a walkway.
Rosenhauer is most commonly recognized for her lead staff position for the revised 2007 version of “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship,” a teaching document issued each general election year by the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference.
Due to sharp polarization within the American Catholic Church -- and among bishops themselves -- in recent years, the current teaching document seeks to reach across ideological divisions to focus “on the whole of the Church’s teachings -- to which no party conforms completely.”
