KANSAS CITY, Mo- Boston College School of Law Dean, Vincent Rougeau, J.D., will present “Global Migration, Citizenship and Catholic Social Teaching.” This talk, which is a part of the Visiting Scholar Lecture Series is sponsored by Rockhurst University and the Thomas More Center for the Study of Catholic Thought and Culture. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 29, in Mabee Theater.
Rougeau will present the role of Roman Catholic social teaching based on the questions of global migration and citizenship. He will declare that Catholic social teachings with an emphasis on the dignity of the human person maintain values essential to democratic societies like the United States.
