The Signs of the Times Brown Bag Lunch series is a casual gathering to discuss current issues through the lens of Catholic Social Tradition. Our speaker at the October event will be John Pintor, executive director of the United Religious Community of St. Joseph County, discussing the topic of refugees. All are welcome to join and registration is not required. Beverages and desserts will be provided. 

About the Speaker

John Pinter is the Executive Director of the United Religious Community of St. Joseph County, a position he has served in since 2015. In addition to that, John has a small consulting business, working with nonprofits, educational institutions, and municipal organizations. These include local organizations like La Casa de Amistad and the History Museum, the City of South Bend Mayor’s Office, and Indiana Youth Institute. He also teaches in the Mendoza College of Business’ Nonprofit Certificate program and assists with the Mandela Washington Fellowship of the Pulte Institute.

In a prior position with the American Red Cross, the local chapter served as a refugee resettlement site in greater South Bend, which went through a process of establishing a State Department approved entity in collaboration with Church World Service (one of nine NGOs that work with State to help resettle families in the US).

John lives near Howard Park in South Bend with his wife Laurie and enjoyes occasional visits from their three young adult kids.

John received his B.A. in Government from the University of Notre Dame and his MBA from the University of Utah.
