"Of Butterflies and Vultures:
John Giuliano's Story in El Salvador"
Thursday, October 7 at 7:30 pm
in Walsh Lecture Hall (BA 117)
John Giuliano will give a lecture titled: "Of Butterflies and Vultures:
John Giuliano's Story in El Salvador." John is originally from The
Bronx, New York. In 1984, when he was twenty-three and a Jesuit novice,
John began living and working in El Salvador. Although no longer with the
Jesuit order, John worked with Jesuit Refugee Services for five years.
After the Salvadoran Peace Accords were signed in 1992, John journeyed
for six months on a bicycle tour titled "A Time to Heal" that took him
across the U.S. and through Mexico to El Salvador. He currently works with
the young people of Guarjila in Chalatenango, El Salvador. Given that Nov.
16 marks the 10th anniversary of the murder of the six Jesuits, their housekeeper
and her daughter at the University of Central America in San Salvador,
John's personal stories of life in El Salvador and the U.S. are timely
for our Creighton community. Come and join us! Sponsored by Student Board
of Governors, APO, CULSA, Campus Ministry, The Jesuit Community, JUSTICE,
Justice and Peace Studies Program, Peace and Justice Coop, Amnesty International,
Residence Life, Habitat for Humanity and the Creighton Center for Service
