WTAE-TV (4) news anchor Mike Clark will open the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh’s 2008 adult education lecture series.

Clark’s lecture, slated for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24 at St. Paul Seminary in Crafton, is titled “The Everyday Challenge to Follow Christ’s Path.”

The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations will be accepted.

A 1985 graduate of St. John’s University in New York, Clark has been at WTAE since 1995, and his Catholic faith has frequently informed his coverage. Clark covered Pope John Paul II’s visits to the United States in 1995 and 1999, as well as the pontiff’s funeral in 2005; a series of reports in 2000 from a Catholic mission in Peru netted Clark an award named for the late Bishop Fulton J. Sheen.
