Papal Exhibit on the Move at CUA

The papal exhibit, "Together in Faith: The Pope Visits Catholic University," is on the move. After being displayed at the Columbus School of Law for nearly a month, the exhibit will relocate to the first floor of the John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library on Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Among the objects displayed are the chair Pope Benedict XVI used during his visit to Catholic University, a museum-grade reproduction of a third-century papyrus copy of the Letters of St. Peter and the zucchetto that the Pope gave CUA's president, Very Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M. The exhibit features three sections dedicated to planning the papal visit, papal-related contests such as the competition to design Pope Benedict XVI's chair, and various photos, banners and gifts from the visit.

A corresponding Web site can be found here (http://libraries.cua.edu/papalexhibit/).

The papal exhibit will be available for viewing between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the following locations:

Aug. 26 to Sept. 5, John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library, first floor
Sept. 9 to Sept. 17, McMahon Hall, lobby
Sept. 20 to Oct. 19, Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, atrium
