Apr 2, 2018 | University Relations staff

DUBUQUE, Iowa – University of Dubuque’s Christian Leadership Council will host its annual Faith Week from Monday, April 2, through Friday, April 6, with a variety of events and guest speakers.

“Faith Week is a week full of intentional efforts to demonstrate the truth of God’s love, foster fellowship and understanding, and honor all,” said Rev. Jim Gunn (MDiv’02) Edwin B. Lindsay Undergraduate Campus Chaplain. “Not only will we seek to make more radiant the faith of those who are Christians, but we will encourage the practice of Christian love and the appreciation of diversity in such a way as to show hospitality, to seek the common good, and to work with others wherever the good can be agreed upon while respecting differences.”

Here is a schedule of events. Those events open to the public are noted:
