Faculty members from Mercyhurst University will gather March 29 to share views on death from a variety of perspectives.
Dr. Mary Hembrow Snyder will begin the Lenten program with a lecture titled “Death: The Great Adventure.” In 2010, Snyder was appointed the first Endowed Chair in Mercy & Catholic Studies at Mercyhurst and director of the newly established Center for Mercy and Catholic Studies. She has been a member of the religious studies faculty for 25 years.
Following her talk, colleagues from a variety of disciplines will respond, including Dr. Ludlow ‘Bud’ Brown, philosophy; Dr. Dyan McBride Jones, physics; and Dr. Daniel McFee, religious studies. Dr. Verna Ehret will moderate the discussion.
The program is set for Thursday, March 29, at 4:30 p.m. in the Mercy Heritage Room at the university and is free and open to the public.
