The Center for Christian Spirituality at the University of San Diego presents:
An Advent Reflection: Giving an Explanation For Our Hope
Presenter: John O’Brien, CSSp

Fr. John O’Brien, CSSp, is a visiting fellow at the University of San Diego’s Center for Catholic Thought and Culture. He has presented the inaugural Emile Switgall Lecture, “Christian-Muslim Dialogue from Below: Spiritan Perspectives from Pakistan,” based upon his ongoing experience in Pakistan in ministries with housing cooperatives, adult education, youth work and pastoral ministry especially among urban “sweepers.”

Since his arrival on campus he has met with faculty, student groups, and presented in the Explorations in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition series on the topic, “Solidarity and the Option for the Poor.” As we approach Advent, the Center for Christian Spirituality invites you to join Fr. O’Brien to share his reflections on the encouragement of St. Peter’s first letter (1 Pet. 2:15): “Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.”

The presentation will include breakfast in the University’s dining room, La Gran Terraza, and the Saturday date will offer accessible parking. We hope you can join us for this opportunity to deepen our understanding of Christian hope.

RSVP is required by November 7. Light breakfast is included. To register online please visit www.sandiego.edu/ccs.
