The Evolving Ecosystem of Jesuit Higher Education: From Teilhard de Chardin to Pope Francism

Tuesday, April 18, 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

LMU Faculty and Staff are invited to a richly illustrated and engaging multi-media event by Fr. Tom Lucas, SJ, Seattle U. Professor of Art and Art History. Jesuit education has always acknowledged the importance of the physical sciences, even in times when tradition and changing paradigms came into conflict with one another. Fr. Lucas’ lecture will raise questions about the relationship between reason and faith, evolutionary and revolutionary consciousness, and the global imperatives of integral ecology laid out in Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical “Laudato si, Our Care for Our Common Home.” 

Fr. Lucas is Seattle University Professor of Art and Art History who has lectured on Jesuit history, art, and science at two dozen universities in eight countries. His book Landmarking: City, Church and Jesuit Urban Strategy won a national book award in 2000.

You may register by email to or call 310.338.1806.
