Center for Catholic Studies and CFPL 10th Anniversary, Jan. 20

This January, the Center for Catholic Studies and the Center for Faith and Public Life will celebrate their 10 year anniversaries at Fairfield University. To kick off their 10 year anniversaries, the Centers will be hosting an Open House on January 20 at 3 p.m. in Canisius 200. All are welcome to attend.

Beginning in February, the Center for Catholic Studies will offer a series of Living Theology workshops and lectures from noted theologians and award-winning writers. All events are free and open to the public.  

On Wednesday, March 16 at 8 p.m. in the Quick Center for the Arts and The Center for Faith and Public Life will be co-sponsoring an Open VISIONS Student Forum, “Faith and Public Service,” featuring Mark Shriver who will discuss his career fighting social injustice and his participation in service organizations, such as serving as president of Save the Children Action Network.

The Center for Catholic Studies was established in 2006 under the direction of Dr. Paul Lakeland. Since its inception, the Center for Catholic Studies has established an undergraduate minor program in Catholic Studies, encouraged the inclusion of mission and identity issues in academia on campus, promoted Catholic intellectual and religious tradition on campus, and established an outreach program with the local community.   

In 2005, the Center for Faith and Public Life was established with the goal of preparing students to become global citizens, while creating a public forum to discuss today’s critical issues and generate research-based solutions. As the Center prepares to move forward into the next 10 years, it will continue to build on its primary goals including the launch of the Humanitarian Action Minor this spring.
