If you did not receive your free copy of Living the Mission at Convocation, you can pick one up in the University Ministry office (Phelan Hall, Lower Level) on lower campus or the Office of Communications and Marketing (Lone Mountain Rossi, 2nd Floor) on Lone Mountain.  The book will also be available for pickup at each of the four discussion events.  A light lunch will be served.
