  • Icon Laugh with 'The Memo'

    STEUBENVILLE, OH—Franciscan University's Anathan Theatre will present as its fall production, The Memo, a parody of bureaucracy full of ridiculous characters, political satire, and funny situations. Translated in 2012 from Václav Havel's 1965 play The Memorandum, it takes a satiric look at the absurdity of bureaucracy and the ways in which it can dehumanize. It offers many laughs, but also prompts the audience to consider their role in enabling bureaucracy to function.

    Icon Ex Corde Ecclesiae Symposia
    STEUBENVILLE, OHIO—The 1960s through 1980s saw a dramatic shift in Catholic higher education as numerous Catholic colleges and universities declared themselves outside the authority of the magisterium. Having personally witnessed the breakdown of education while a student during WWII, Pope John Paul II recognized the negative effects of this modern crisis on modern students. The year 1990 saw the pope's release of Ex corde Ecclesiae ("From the Heart of the Church"), an Apostolic Constitution on Catholic Higher Education, aimed at bringing Catholic colleges and universities back to their roots in the Catholic faith.
