St. Maria Goretti Parish will host author Marie Monville, the widow of the man who in 2006 took hostages and shot 10 girls in an Amish one-room schoolhouse before killing himself.
The lecture is Monday, Nov. 2 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in St. Maria Goretti Church located at Cowpath and Derstine Roads in Hatfield, Montgomery County.
Monville, author of “One Light Still Shines: My Life Beyond the Shadow of the Amish School Shooting,” will explain the Amish community’s response of love and forgiveness after the tragedy, and her personal experience of faith and hope.
She will have books available for purchase and signing. The event is free with refreshments following, and donations will be accepted.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
