Saint Vincent College School of Social Sciences, Communication, and Education will present Msgr. James Gaston as the final speaker in the fourth edition of its lecture series on Aging and Spirituality at 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, at the Fred M. Rogers Center. His presentation is entitled, “What Are We Afraid Of?.” Admission is free and open to the public.

Fr. Gaston has been pastor of St. Margaret Mary R.C. Church, Lower Burrell, for 13 years. Prior to that, he served in the Diocese of Greensburg Education Office and as pastor of Immaculate Conception R.C. Church, Irwin.

His talk will discuss the spiritual values that are part of the natural diminishment that comes with aging. “These spiritual truths can conflict with the secular and cultural tendency to deny the realities of sadness and loss,” he said.

Persons of all ages are welcome to attend and share in the discussion and questions.

Parking for the physically challenged is available at the Fred M. Rogers Center. All participants may park in Parking Area A and enter the Rogers Center at the first floor entrance.

Reservations are not required. For additional information, phone 724 805-2522.
