Father John Dear, an internationally recognized voice for peace and nonviolence, will be at St Thomas More Church, 3000 12th St, Coralville on May 4th. 

There will be a reception at 6:00pm, with Father Dear speaking at 7:00, followed by book signing and refreshments.  He will  speak about his latest book “They Will Inherit The Earth” in which he discusses how Jesus connected nonviolence with the oneness of creation, a reflection on Pope Francis Encyclical Laudato Si. 

Father Dear is a priest, pastor, retreat leader and author.  He has been nominated many times for the Nobel Peace Prize, including by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.  He was the recipient of the Pacem in Terris award from the Diocese of Davenport in 2010. 

The book is $16 and can be paid by check or cash.  There will be a collection taken for Father Dear’s work with Campaign Nonviolence.
