2014 Hesburgh Alumni Lecture

Rev. David T. Link

Thursday, April 24

7:00 p.m.


Furman University’s Office of the Chaplains, in partnership with the Notre Dame Club of the Western Carolinas and the university’s Catholic Campus Ministry, is pleased to host the 2014 Hesburgh Alumni Lecture on Thursday, April 24, at 7:00 p.m. in the Daniel Memorial Chapel at Furman University

Our guest lecturer, Rev. David T. Link, whose presentation is entitled “Serving the Least, the Last, and Lost, and the Lonely,” has a unique and compelling story.

In 2003, with the death of his beloved wife, Barbara, Link attended a Roman Catholic seminary and became a priest-widower with five children and 13 grandchildren.  

A book by writer Maura Poston Zagrans, “Camerado, I Give You My Hand:  How a Powerful Lawyer-Turned-Priest is Changing the Lives of Men Behind Bars,” describes Link’s ministry since he became a priest at the age of 71.  A search on the Amazon website under Camerado will reveal a brief video introducing the book and David Link.

A reception hosted by the Catholic Campus Ministry​ follows the lecture in the Bryan Garden Room.
