RALEIGH, N.C. — Can one person make a difference in the world?

That question will be explored Nov. 28 at the Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi here when it holds its seminar, “Conscience and the Pursuit of the Common Good.”

Marie Dennis, president of Pax Christi and director of the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, presents the third installment of the church’s faith and politics series. It takes place, 7 to 9 p.m., with a light supper at 6 p.m.

The event is sponsored by The Franciscan Coalition for Justice and Peace of the Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi.

Earlier this month, Tom Melville, author of the critically-acclaimed book, Through a Glass Darkly, also spoke at the parish. He recounted the history of the Guatemalan civil war, its impact on our global brothers and sisters, and what people can do to help.

This talk was sponsored by the Coalition’s Immigration Advocacy Team and Sister Parish Guatemala Ministry.
