Assumption College Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall in Tsotsis Family Academic Center

Assumption College Humanart series presents harpist Susan Knapp, from the faculty of Hartt College of Music. 

This will be a program of varied dance steps (Samba, Canaries, Tango, Waltz), old and new, set for harp, in combination with 2 movements from a work entitled “Ganagobie,” (which is a  10th center Benedictine monastery in France). The movements from Ganagobie are “The Stone Portal” and “The Old Monk,”  depicting the amazing stone portal that graces the Chapel, and a monk.  I’ll wrap up with somewhat of a “playlist” of more modern favorites, from Standards, to film score tunes, to modern song-writer songs.

This event will take place in the Tsotsis Family Academic Building in the Janne Y. Curtis Performance Hall and is free and open to the public.

"The Global Refugee Crisis and Pope Francis"

"The Global Refugee Crisis and Pope Francis"

1 November 2018 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
Event Venue: 

La Maison Salon

Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service’s Father Richard Ryscavage SJ ’67 will draw upon years of research and experience to survey the global refugee crisis, and provide innovative ideas to address this humanitarian crisis. Fr. Ryscavage will also share insights on how Pope Francis views the crisis and how the Holy Father has acted to ease human pain and suffering.

After graduating from Assumption with a degree in foreign affairs, Fr. Ryscavage entered the Jesuits and worked on development projects in remote areas of South America. He was then hired by the Gandhi Foundation in New Delhi to work on Gandhian methodology for reducing conflict between youth groups in northern Indian villages.

As executive director for the Office of Migration and Refugee Services for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Fr. Ryscavage managed the world’s largest refugee resettlement agency and testified before Congressional Committees on refugees and immigrants. As a researcher at the University of Oxford’s Refugee Studies Center, he visited nearly every refugee camp throughout the world before being appointed to the Jesuit Refugee Service USA office. There, he collaborated with the Department of Homeland Security to make Jesuit chaplains available in immigration detention centers. At this time he was also elected to be chairman of the INTERACTION coalition of American non-governmental humanitarian agencies. Fr. Ryscavage officially represented these NGOs at meetings before the State Department, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Homeland Security, as well as at the United Nations and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Geneva, Switzerland.

He studied intercultural management at the School for International Training in Vermont; political philosophy at Boston College and at Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
