The University of St. Francis in Joliet will host an event where it will explore a special decade-by-decade recap of its history.

USF is holding the event, Mother Moes and the Founding of the University of St. Francis, on Tuesday, March 24, at 2:30 p.m.

USF education professor Madonna Murphy will begin the event with a presentation about Mother Alfred Moes with 10 speakers to follow, highlighting each decade of the university's history, according to a news release.

The event is free and open to the public and will take place in San Damiano Hall, located in the Motherhouse at 520 Plainfield Road in Joliet.
