The Catholic Society of Wheaton College presents From Slave to Saint, an evening lecture by Bishop Joseph N. Perry this Wednesday, November 20th at 7:00 p.m. in the Billy Graham Center, Barrows Auditorium.
We invite you to join the Catholic Society of Wheaton College as we host His Excellency, Bishop Joseph N. Perry, of the Archdiocese of Chicago, for a night of discussion on the life and pending canonization of Fr. Augustus Tolton. As the first African American slave to become a priest, Fr. Tolton is a shining example of perseverance and faithfulness in the face of worldly adversity. This unique event will be held on November 20th in Barrows Auditorium on the campus of Wheaton College, 500 College Ave, Wheaton, IL 60187. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., with the main talk beginning at 7 pm. For further information, visit and contact us on Facebook at @WheatonCatholicSociety or at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
Though May is when the United States celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Wheaton College has chosen to celebrate in April to maximize campus-wide participation. These events will be held online and are free and open to the public.
