As part of its ongoing lecture series, Labouré College will welcome David Willey, journalist, broadcaster, and author of the recently published book The Promise of Francis, on April 5, 2016, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. The lecture and book signing will be held at Labouré College, 303 Adams Street in Milton in room C112. This event is free and open to the public.

Willey will make a number of presentations at US Catholic colleges in April, and will begin with Labouré. Entitled The Vatican: From Fortress to Field Hospital, Willey’s lecture will focus on his work with several popes at the Vatican as well as on what he sees as Pope Francis’s attempt to change the image of the Vatican as fortress. He will also discuss Pope Francis’ agenda and how it resonates with Labouré’s mission to prepare incredibly resilient and altruistic students who will provide care and comfort to our community.

“David Willey has reported for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) from Rome since 1971 under five Popes: Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis.”
