Dr. Patricia Sharbaugh, assistant professor of theology at Saint Vincent College, will be the next speaker in the Aging and Spirituality Lecture Series presented by the School of Social Sciences, Communication and Education at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the Fred M. Rogers Center. Her talk is entitled, “The Spiritual History of Catholicism.”
