The Catholic Lecture Series was created to further the University’s strategic objective of visibly embedding its Catholic and Vincentian mission in the academic life of the University. Future lectures will continue to explore how liberal arts disciplines are impacted by Catholic tradition.
The series was established by St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Provost.
