Stevens Point native now Servant of God Br James Miller

WINONA — Guest speaker Brother Paul Joslin, FSC — a colleague and friend of Brother James Miller — will present "Witnessing to Nonviolence" on Oct. 7 at Saint Mary's University.

This year marked the 28th anniversary of the death of Brother James, a member of the De La Salle Christian Brothers and a 1966 graduate of Saint Mary's. Brother James was taking education, faith and hope to marginalized Guatemalans when he was shot and killed in 1982 by four masked gunmen while mending a wall outside the De La Salle Casa Indigena where he worked.

The La Crosse Diocese has presented cause for his canonization, and the Catholic Church is investigating cause for his sainthood. He has been named a Servant of God.

Brother Paul, also a De La Salle Christian Brother, teaches at St. Raymond High School in the Bronx of New York.

The event, part of SMU's Lasallian Week of Peace, will run from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Salvi Lecture Hall, located on the third floor of Saint Mary's Hall.

Wow, WI seems to be a hotbed for apparitions and (nearly) saints lately!
