DETAILS:










The Catholic University of America will host a lecture by Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, S.T.D., on "The Synod of Bishops on the Word of God: An Insider's View."

Archbishop Wuerl is the archbishop of Washington, university chancellor and CUA's Cardinal William W. Baum Professor of Theology.

The archbishop will speak about the World Synod of Bishops, which was held from Oct. 5 to Oct. 26, on the topic of the Bible. On Oct. 21, Archbishop Wuerl told Catholic News Service that the synod "is challenging pastors of souls to find better ways of helping people access the Bible, the Scriptures. What I think will come out of this synod are creative ways to do that."

A synod is an assembly at which bishops gather to share information and experiences about a common pastoral issue.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
