Art of the Beautiful Lecture Series: “Daring To Love The Beautiful One”
The final lecture of the season is on Saturday, April 8th at 7:30 PM. His Excellency, Frank J. Caggiano, Bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport, will speak to us about “Daring To Love The Beautiful One.” The event takes place, as always, at the Catholic Center at NYU. Afterwards, meet Bishop Caggiano and make new friends at the wine and cheese. We end the evening with sung Compline.
Bishop Caggiano was born in Brooklyn on Easter Sunday, 1959. He attended Ss. Simon and Jude Elementary School in Gravesend, and Regis High School in Manhattan. He entered Yale University as a political science major, but later decided to enter the priesthood. He earned a B.A. in philosophy from Cathedral College, a M.Div. from Immaculate Conception Seminary, and a licentiate and doctorate in theology from the Gregorian University, Rome. He was named Auxiliary Bishop of Brooklyn by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006, and installed as Fifth Bishop of Bridgeport in 2013.
