The newly established Center for Catholic Studies at St. Mary’s University seeks to enable faculty and students to explore social policy issues and examine the Catholic Church in society and culture, particularly as it relates to the Southwest region of the nation and its growing Hispanic population in the Church and other Christian religions.
The Center’s Programming
Integral to the Center for Catholic Studies is a focus on programming and opportunities to engage, study, and discuss with the University and external communities that focus on the key elements of Catholic Intellectual Tradition:
- Compatibility of faith and reason
- Collective wisdom through history
- Inclusivity and diversity of peoples, cultures and religions
- Importance of the communal nature of humanity
- Integrative scholarship
The Center for Catholic Studies is a resource hub.
