University of Dallas Announces George Weigel as Commencement Speaker

Catholic writer and theologian George Weigel will be the commencement speaker at the University of Dallas (UD) in Irving, Tex., this May, according to the University.

Weigel, a Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, is especially renowned for his biographies on Blessed Pope John Paul II.  He will reportedly speak at the University just three weeks after the beloved Pope’s canonization.

"This is truly a unique opportunity for the UD community to hear from one of the foremost authorities on Blessed John Paul II," said UD President Thomas W.Keefe. "The University of Dallas is fortunate to have the longstanding and enthusiastic support of Mr. Weigel, both as a Catholic intellectual leader and as a parent of alumnae of the university." 

Weigel just recently spoke to students studying in Rome from Newman Guide-recommended University of Mary about his new book, Roman Pilgrimage: The Station Churches, as was reported.

The University of Dallas is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
