Lenten lecture series, The Book of Exodus: A Spiritual Journey


Location: Eck Visitors Center, Notre Dame


All lectures will take place in the auditorium of the Eck Visitors Center, Notre Dame, 7:00pm 

March 8, March 22 and April 5

* For those unable to attend the lectures, they will be recorded and posted to the ICLYouTube page.

The series is designed to accompany pilgrim-readers as they journey through the Book of Exodus during Lent and in anticipation of Easter. With 40 chapters to this book, those who take on this spiritual journey are encouraged to read one chapter per day throughout Lent. The lectures will draw out spiritual, theological, and liturgical themes that will enrich readers’ own reflection and prayer. We are also happy to help readers join with others in reading groups in order to share in periodic conversation around Exodus and its themes during Lent and into the Easter season. (Sign up here if you're interested in joining a reading group. Discussion guide forthcoming.)

Academic Course: running alongside the lecture series, a 1.0 credit academic course is being offered to students. If you are a student at ND/SMC/HCC and would still like to register for this course (THEO 30057 with the same name as this lecture series), please do so through InsideND or by contacting Prof. Leonard DeLorenzo.
