Future topics in the series include “The Vital Vote? Catholics and the 2004 Election,” featuring Joe Feuerherd, a Washington correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, on Oct. 28; and “Beyond the Election – What Now?” presented on April 14, speaker to be announced.

All events will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Alumnae Hall in the Haehn Campus Center on the CSB campus. The events are free and open to the public.

This series will provide principles, ethical values and dialogue from different faith perspectives, which can help inform and form individual conscience to make an educated decision during the election process and beyond.
