Orr is recently retired from St. John's Church Newtownbreda in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He received an Order of the British Empire in the Queen's honor list for "Service to Community Relations" in recognition of his commitment to building stronger ties between churches and people from different cultural, social and political backgrounds.

The Campus Ministry Center hosts this event in conjunction with the regional Campus Ministry Network and the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, which brings people engaged in peace building around the world to the U.S. to speak to local congregations and organizations.
