‘Just’ Soup to serve up talks on social justice

DAVENPORT — Another helping of “Just” Soup will be served in St. Anthony Parish Center this Lent.
Larry Duke of the parish’s adult faith formation committee said this year’s “Just” Soup 2 is “a second helping of soup and a second helping of social justice.”
After experiencing a successful first year of the program during Lent 2012, the committee decided talks on different areas of social justice would be offered by local speakers again.
The first session is tonight, Feb. 21, on “Peace Initiatives: Stories of Hope for Peace.” The presentation is by Father Brian Miclot, a philosophy professor at St. Am­brose Uni­ver­sity in Davenport. He will talk about what Father Theodore Hesburgh, former president of Notre Dame University, the McDonald grant and the St. Ambrose Peace House have in common. He will weave a story based on facts and dreams for peace, Duke said.
