Memorial for Rev. Eric Freed

Native American Forum
Humboldt State University’s Department of Religious Studies will memorialize the late Reverend Eric Freed of St. Bernard Catholic Church, Eureka, on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. in the Native American Forum.

HSU faculty, Religious Studies students and alumni will honor Freed, who served on the university’s Religious Studies faculty from 2007 until his sudden death Jan. 1. He taught courses on Christianity, the New Testament, Japanese Calligraphy and Myth. He was also Director of the Newman Center.
Speakers will highlight Freed’s life and career and ethno-musicologist Sarah McClimon will perform a contemporary piece for solo koto to honor his expertise in Japanese language and culture.

Attendees will be invited to share their memories and personal experiences, followed by a reception with refreshments.
A Michigan native, Freed completed his studies in theology at Pontifical Salesian University, Turin, Italy in 1990. He was ordained in the priesthood in Tokyo later that year. Appointed Pastor of St. Bernard Roman Catholic Parish in 2001, Freed became Chaplain of the Newman Center at Humboldt State in 2006.

The Feb. 9, 2 p.m. service will be held in the Native American Forum adjoining the Behavioral and Social Sciences Building, top of the hill, Union Street, Arcata. The campus community and the general public are invited to attend.
