YOU ARE INVITED: Exciting Upcoming Speaker Series events

The Parent and Family Advisory Council is excited to announce two upcoming speaker series events for the spring semester.

"Study Abroad at St. Kate's:  Who, What Where, When and How?"
Sunday, February 10,  1-2:30 p.m., Location:  President's Dining Room, 372 CdC

Back by popular request, we will once again offer this presentation to parents and their student to learn all about the study abroad programs that St. Kate's offers.  More and more employers are looking for candidates who graduate with study abroad experiences....come and learn why.
Catherine Spaeth, Director of Global Studies will provide an overview of the programs offered, how students and families can plan for these experiences and well as explain the financing.  Also, we will have a panel of students who have studied abroad, share their unique experiences -- what they learned and the ways in which they are incorporating their experience in their overall education.

Please R.S. V. P. by Wednesday, February 6th to the Office of Student Affairs at: or phone 651.690-6778.

"Chapel Talk: the architecture and unique features of Our Lady of Victory Chapel"
Sunday, April 21st, 1-2:30 p.m., Our Lady of Victory Chapel

Social Work Professor Mary Ann Brendon has conducted extensive research on studying the background, design and architecture of St. Kate's beautiful chapel on the hill.  Come learn where Sister Antonia McHugh got her inspiration and why Archbishop Dowling reportedly said, "Sister Antonia asked to build a chapel, but she built a cathedral." Come to Mass at 10:30 a.m., enjoy brunch with your student and then attend this engaging lecture with historical photographs and lively discussion.

Please R.S.V.P. by Wednesday, April 17, 2013 to the Office of Student Affairs at: or phone 651.690-6778.
