This event will be a quiet retreat to experience the different dimensions of poverty, learn about the principles of Catholic social teaching, and understanding our Gospel call to live in solidarity with our neighbors overseas. It will be followed by a Simple Meal and Discussion.
The University of Notre Dame’s Human Development Conference (HDC) is an annual, student-led conference that brings together undergraduate and graduate students to present their research related to issues of international development.
Soha Menassa works for Catholic Relief Services in Beirut, Lebanon. She will share how Catholics are helping Syrian refugees in the midst of the humanitarian crisis in the region.
