Catholic Univ. of America Knights of Columbus Hosts Archbishop Lori

Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore will speak on “What it Means to be Pro-Life in Today’s Society” on April 1 at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., according to the University’s website.

Archbishop Lori, who serves as the supreme chaplain of the Knights of Columbus, will be hosted by the University’s council of Knights. He has earned degrees from two institutions recommended in The Newman Guide, The Catholic University of America and Mount St. Mary’s University.

The University reports:

Archbishop Lori was installed as the 16th archbishop of Baltimore in 2012. He is chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Ad Hoc Committee on Universities and Colleges as well as a member of the Committee on Doctrine, the Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and the Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage.

Born in Louisville, Ky., Archbishop Lori earned a bachelor’s degree from the Seminary of Saint Pius X in Erlanger, Ky., in 1973 and a master’s degree from Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Md., in 1977, the same year he was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Washington. In 1982, he received his doctorate in sacred theology from Catholic University.

“The archbishop has been a vocal leader in the pro-life movement, and we are honored and excited to welcome him to campus to speak about the importance of being pro-life in today's society, particularly on a college campus,” [said senior Nicholas Shields, grand knight of the CUA council].
