Rorate Caeli

Events: Dr. Kwasniewski’s Upcoming Lectures in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio

After a long hiatus due to COVID-19, I will be resuming my public lectures with a trip to southern New Jersey, across Pennsylvania, and ending at the Franciscan University of Steubenville (my third visit to a most accommodating community, thanks to the local Juventutem and Una Voce chapters!). I will be giving a different talk at each location. The dates and locations follow. Nota bene: I am aware that, due to various restrictions, locations will have caps on the number of guests. As a result, we are working to ensure that the talks will be made available afterwards in video form; some, at least, will be published as well.
