Economist Sister Amata Miller is next ‘Faith and Work’ breakfast speaker
Sister Amata Miller, professor of economics at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, will be the next speaker in a series of breakfast talks co-sponsored by St. Olaf Catholic Church and the John A. Ryan Institute for Catholic Social Thought at the University of St. Thomas.
The Faith and Work Breakfasts, now in their 11th year, deal with the personal challenges of faith-and-work integration and are designed for professionals from all faiths. Each year the series focuses on a different theme; the focus this year is “Through the Eye of the Needle: The Challenge of Wealth.”

Sister Miller’s breakfast talk will be held at 7 a.m. Thursday, March 10, in Fleming Hall of St. Olaf Catholic Church, 215 S. Eighth St., Minneapolis. She will discuss “Prophetic and Practical: A Catholic Vision of Globalization and Wealth.”
The forces of globalization touch the computer technician in Minnesota, the small-business owner in Kenya and the assembly worker in Mexico. Miller, who has written numerous publications dealing with Catholic social thought and economic justice, will examine in her talk the dynamics and moral challenges of globalization and wealth creation.
The cost of each Faith and Work Breakfast is $18, which includes a continental breakfast. Pre-registration is encouraged. To make a reservation or for more information, call St. Olaf Catholic Church, (612) 332-7471, Ext. 279. Information also is available on the Web.
