Criterion staff report

Holy Year of Mercy logoAs part of its celebration of the Holy Year of Mercy, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is hosting a Marian Jubilee from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 8 at St. Bartholomew Church, 1306 27th St., in Columbus. Doors open for the event at 8 a.m.

Dr. Scott Hahn, founder and director of the Steubenville, Ohio-based Saint Paul Center for Biblical Theology, will be the keynote speaker.

The event will include a Marian procession, a welcome and witness talk by Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin, and a variety of religious items and books available for purchase.

A former Presbyterian minister, Hahn entered the Catholic Church in 1986. His talks have been effective in helping thousands of people embrace the Catholic faith.

He has been awarded the Father Michael Scanlan, TOR, Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he has taught since 1990. From 2005 to 2011, he held the Pope Benedict XVI Chair of Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation at St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pa.

Hahn is also the best-selling author of numerous books, including The Lamb’s Supper, Reasons to Believe, and Rome Sweet Home (co-authored with his wife, Kimberly). Some of his newest books are The Creed, Evangelizing Catholics, Angels and Saints, and Joy to the World.

The event is free and open to the public, but due to space limitations, everyone must register prior to the event.

Registration will close once the capacity of 900 has been met. Anyone who registers after that will be put on a waiting list.

If you have registered for the event and are unable to attend, please notify Theresa Chamblee at tchamblee@archindy.org or 800-382-9836, ext. 1404, or 317-236-1404. This will help organizers to open the spot for those on the waiting list.

If you are unable to attend the Marian Jubilee, please join the archdiocese in solidarity by praying a rosary on Oct. 8 between 8 a.m. and noon.
