Sister Nancy Dawson, OSU, executive director of The Ursuline Center and an instructor of World Religions classes at Youngstown State University for a decade, will offer a special lecture series on her subject of specialty this October.
The World Religions Lecture Series will explore several religions and discuss the criteria for recognizing similarities and differences with Christianity – the faith tradition of the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown.
This lecture series will help participants to have a deeper appreciation of their own religious backgrounds, respect the diversity of other religions, and teach them the proper vocabulary and concepts to help them speak intelligently regarding other religions.
Sister Nancy will explore the stories, symbols, rituals, beliefs, values, writings, artistic expressions and charismatic leaders of several world religions.
There is a $40 donation for the four-class lecture series, which covers handouts and use of multi-media. Participants also can pay $10 per class as they attend.
The classes will run Oct. 8, 15, 22 and 29. The same class will be offered twice daily; people can either attend from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., or from 6:30-8 p.m. Those attending the entire series can choose morning or afternoon sessions as their schedules allow.
