Public Lecture on Newman, Mary and the Liturgy in New Hampshire, Friday 13th

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance at Fatima, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts will host a lecture given by Fr Rob Johansen, entitled “Newman, Mary, and the Liturgy: The Reality of Communion.” It will be held on Friday, October 13, 7:00 pm, at Mercy Hall (Anderson House), 90 Concord Street Nashua, New Hampshire. The lecture is free of charge and open to the public; a wine and cheese reception will follow. For more information call Thomas More College at (603) 880-8308 or e-mail Andrew Thompson-Briggs at

Fr Robert Johansen is a priest of the diocese of Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he serves as Diocesan Theological Consultant and Chaplain. He holds a Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the Liturgical Institute of the University of St Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois, where he is currently a candidate for the Doctor of Sacred Theology. He is the author of numerous articles on theology and liturgy, and a frequent speaker and presenter at conferences and workshops on liturgy, chant, and the Sacraments.

On a personal note, several years ago, when I was teaching at Thomas More College, I invited him to give a lecture on the evangelization of the culture to the students in my Way of Beauty program, and it was through this that I understood for the first time the Catholic understanding of the connection between the liturgy and the culture. I would recommend all who can get there to do so.
