Lourdes University Vice President for Mission and Ministry Sr. Ann Carmen Barone, OSF, is pleased to announce “Faith Talks: Human Rights and the Teaching of the Catholic Church, from Saint Francis to Pope Francis” on Sunday, November 1, at 2 p.m. Respected educator and author Paolo G. Carozza, A.B., J.D., is the featured speaker for this free event scheduled at the Franciscan Center of Lourdes University, 6832 Convent Blvd., in Sylvania. Part of the University of Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Lecture Series, it is sponsored by the Lourdes University Office of Mission and Ministry and the Notre Dame & Saint Mary’s Club of Toledo. The Lourdes University Faith Talks series explores the ways that beliefs and faith traditions shape individuals and impact daily lives. The idea of human rights originated in the life of the Catholic Church, and the Catholic social teaching today provides one of the clearest defenses for it. But there are also deep tensions between Catholic tradition and human rights, historically and in the present day. This third installment of the lecture series explores that ambiguous relationship. Paolo G. Carozza’s expertise is in the areas of comparative law, human rights, and international law. His extensive writings in these areas have been published in Europe, Latin America and the United States. At the University of Notre Dame, Mr. Carozza is the Director of the Helen Kellogg Institute for International Studies, an interdisciplinary, university-wide institute focusing on the themes of democracy and human development. In that university’s law school, Mr. Carozza served as the Director of the Center for Civil and Human Rights from 2011-2013 and continues to direct its J.S.D. program. A fellow of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, Professor Carozza earned both his A.B. and J.D. degrees from Harvard University, and pursued graduate studies at Cambridge University at Harvard Law School as a Ford Foundation Fellow in Public International Law. After law school, he served as a judicial clerk for the Supreme Court of the Federated States of Micronesia and worked as an associate at the Washington, D.C., law firm of Arnold & Porter. The Lourdes University Office of Mission and Ministry supports the mission and vision of Lourdes by strengthening its Catholic Franciscan identity.
