The Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice and Public Understanding at St. Norbert College will host "Voting in Good Faith: Preparing for the Fall 2012 Elections" on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. The event will take place in room 114 of the Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus and is free and open to the public.

The event will feature a panel discussion with Robert Pyne, senior director of community engagement at St. Norbert College, and Catharine Zirngibl, living justice director for the Green Bay Diocese.

He worked primarily in peace building, conflict resolution and pastoral education in sub-Saharan countries. Pyne was also professor of theological studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, where he taught for 17 years.
