Loyola welcomes Elizabeth Smart for the 27th Sister Cleophas Costello Lecture. Smart was abducted from her home in Salt Lake City on June 5, 2002, at age 14. The police returned her to her family on March 12, 2003 after 9 months of being held prisoner. She testified before her captor, Brian David Mitchell, which led to his conviction. Using her experience to fuel change, Smart founded the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, which helps other victims and their families.
