The event will also feature the premiere of a new video about the legacy of John Cardinal Foley. Ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Foley served on the Seminary’s faculty for seventeen years while also working as editor of the Catholic Standard & Times. In 1984, he was called to the Vatican to direct the work of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, which he led for twenty-three years. Cardinal Foley concluded his ecclesial service as Grand Master of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre and returned to Philadelphia, where he died in 2011.

The lecture is open to the public with free admission and will be preceded by a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m.
