Noted speakers to appear in Tompkins

Distinguished speakers are scheduled for upcoming lectures sponsored by Catholic faith communities in Tompkins County.

Martha Hennessy, an outspoken peace advocate and the granddaughter of famed Catholic social-justice activist Dorothy Day, is making two appearances on Sunday, Oct. 16. She will speak at Cornell University’s Sage Chapel following the 10:30 a.m. Mass, and also is set to appear at an evening prayer service beginning at 6 p.m. at All Saints Church in Lansing. Hennessy’s visit will highlight an annual Peace Week organized by area faith communities and Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga.

Stephen Barr, an author and professor in the University of Delaware’s Department of Physics and Astronomy, will speak on Oct. 18 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Cornell’s Anabel Taylor Hall. His talk is titled "Is the Human Mind Reducible to Physics?" The presentation will serve as the kickoff event for a second-year speaker series, the St. Albert the Great Forum on Science and Religion, that is headed up by Cornell Catholic Community.
