Date and Time

Monday, April 23, 2012 — Friday, April 27, 2012




University Ministry and Students for Life invite the USD community to join us for LIFE. (Living Is For Everyone) Week 2012 (April 23-27). In support of Catholic social teaching, each day of the week will focus on a different issue that impacts the dignity of human life. The goals of LIFE Week dovetail with the Catholic Social Thought theme of the university for this semester, "Rights and Responsibilities," as we create awareness of the right of each individual to human dignity and our responsibility to help ensure that all people are respected and have basic human necessities.

The schedule of programs is listed below. We would like to invite you to join us at these LIFE Week events.
