Best Lecture and Breakfast Series: A Poet in Your Pocket

with Most Rev. Robert F. Morneau, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus, Diocese of Green Bay

The Norbertine Center for Spirituality is pleased to announce the establishment of a new speakers series supported by Mary Lamm, in loving memory of her husband Joseph. In this series, compelling lecturers offer a presentation they love to give, and participants hear the best of the best.

The second president of our country, John Adams, held this conviction: “You will never be alone with a poet in your pocket.” This favorite lecture will focus on the work of three poets who have spent some time in Bishop Bob’s pocket: Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and George Herbert. Poetry offers encounter and accompaniment—two great graces of life.

  • Presenter: Most Rev. Robert F. Morneau, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus, Diocese of Green Bay
  • Cost: Free will offering (suggested donation $5; includes continental breakfast, presentation)
  • Registration required by September 7
  • Maximum 80 participants

Please note: online registration and payment are required. The registration form can be found below under “Bookings.” Please register for one person at a time. This helps us maintain accurate registration numbers! If you have any questions, please contact the Norbertine Center for Spirituality office at or call 920.337.4315.
