Cardinal Cupich will consider virtue in the context of building up the common good. He will comment on some of the fault lines in the present age that present obstacles, but also suggest the opportunities that a renewed sense of solidarity offers in achieving the common good.
The President of the University of Chicago, Robert J. Zimmer, will provide introductory remarks. A reception will follow Cardinal Cupich's talk.
