Father Allen will offer his reflections on Old Testament, New Testament and contemporary views of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Each session will close with benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

A former headmaster at Fairfield Prep, Father Allen has served as executive assistant to the president of Fairfield University since 1994.  He also serves as secretary of the university’s board of trustees and secretary of the Fairfield University Corporation.
