Fernando Cardenal, S.J.
Fr. Cardenal

Fernando Cardenal, S.J. is legendary as one of the great moral voices of Nicaragua for more than 40 years. Fr. Cardenal, a long-time advocate for social justice and education for the poor, now lends his remarkable energies to Fe y Alegría, the system of Jesuit schools across Central and Latin America.

Accompanied by Marco Gomez, S.J., who will serve as translator, Fr. Cardenal will visit UDM on Wednesday, Oct. 30 to speak about his life-long commitment to the people of Nicaragua, his Jesuit identity and to Fe y Alegría.

The talk will take place at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a reception with refreshments. There will also be an opportunity to help support Fr. Cardenal's work.
