The Reverend Mpho A. Tutu, an Episcopal priest and founder and executive director of the Tutu Institute for Prayer and Pilgrimage, will discuss her work and book "Made for Goodness" at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, in Simmons Hall.
Tutu has run ministries for children in the downtown Worcester, Mass.; for rape survivors in Grahamstown, South Africa; and for refugees from South Africa and Namibia at the Phelps Stokes Fund in New York City. She earned her MDiv from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge and began her ordained ministry at Historic Christ Church in Alexandria, Va.
Following the event — which is sponsored by the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT — Tutu will be signing her book, which will be available for purchase.
