The Gerber Institute for Catholic Studies "Lunch and Learn" series brings the Newman students, faculty, staff and community together for the sake of learning and good fellowship with one another.
The March presentation, "May Your Work be Offered as a Prayer," features Jane McGuire, director of nursing at the Guadalupe Clinic. The Lunch and Learn will take place at noon Monday, March 12, in Eck Hall, room 118.
During the presentation, McGuire will talk about how her faith has impacted her career.
McGuire said, "Nursing brings us into contact with all kinds of people and experiences. Faith helps us define who we are and how we see others and makes it possible to help those less fortunate."
This year's series' theme, "Connecting Health Care with Catholic Intellectual Tradition," makes McGuire an ideal choice as speaker.
Monica Borger, administrative assistant for the Gerber Institute on Catholic Studies as well as Newman Campus Ministry, helps make sure that the event goes according to plan.
Borger said, "I like to see how faith life can and does play a vital role in decision-making, especially in the medical field."
Whether or not the attendees of the event are Catholic, it is guaranteed new knowledge and fellowship will be gained and expanded because of the event.
The event is free and open to the public. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (316) 942-4291, ext. 2422.
