For 24 years Wednesdays in Lent have been highlighted by a series of lectures at the University of St. Thomas. The series has covered a wide range of topics important to Catholic life. This year's theme, "Vatican II: Yesterday and Today," is important to an enrichment in understanding the many facets of the Catholic faith. It is hoped that members of the community will avail themselves of this opportunity for personal growth in the building of the Lord's Kingdom.
