Jesuit Alumni and Friends of Chicago Welcomed Chris Lowney

Over 260 Jesuit alums were in attendance to hear Chris Lowney speak about Pope Francis and Lessons about Leadership on May 23, 2014 at the Union League Club of Chicago. Chris Lowney is the author of bestseller, "Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads". An alum of Regis High School (NY) and Fordham University, Lowney shared stories about the Pope, dusty feet, doing the laundry, and more. 

Event attendees thoroughly enjoyed Lowney’s presentation, especially many of the educators at Jesuit schools who use his books to teach their classes. Event sponsor, Loyola Press, had Lowney’s books on hand for purchase and hosted a book signing at the event.
