You are cordially invited to meet with a delegation from Bethlehem University on Tuesday, October 4, at 4 p.m. at Catholic Theolgoical Union.

The delegation is visiting Chicago to inform the public about the extraordinary work of this University situated in Bethlehem on the West Bank of the Palestinian territories.  Founded by the Christian Brothers under the auspices of the Vatican, it has provided quality education for students from the Palestinian territories under difficult circumstances.  The vast majority of the student body are Muslim students, with a significant Christian number of students as well.  The mission of the University is to bring together in a peaceful and collaborative learning environment the future leadership of the Palestinian people.

For many years, groups from CTU have made it a point to visit the campus of Bethlehem University and to meet students and to see firsthand the great work that the Christian Brothers and their associates are doing there.  You can learn more about the University from its website:

The program at CTU will consist of a presentation by the delegation, beginning at 4 p.m., in Assembly 210 B & C, followed by a reception at 5 p.m., and concluding at 6 p.m.  The program will take place at CTU’s Academic & Conference Center, 5416 S. Cornell Ave.
