On Tuesday, February 13, Fr. Paul Kollman, C.S.C., will present a free talk, “Africa’s Contributions to the Catholic Church: Past, Present and Future,” at 7:15 p.m., in the Bauccio Commons. In his talk, Fr. Kollman proposes that Africa today represents one the most vital places of growth in the Catholic Church and considers these questions: First, what connections, if any, exist between the past centrality of Africa to the church and its present and future importance? And second, what does Africa’s growing role mean for the Catholic Church in a global perspective? Fr. Kollman is associate professor of theology and executive director of the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame. This event is sponsored by the Garaventa Center.
