In this age of uncertainties, the importance of change will be critical to unlocking what it will mean for St. Jerome’s to realize its contemporary mission in Catholic higher education. As a society, we are grappling with the many challenges of social injustice left to us by previous generations, including the increasing gap between rich and poor, the importance of equity, diversity and inclusion, justice and reconciliation for Indigenous people, and sustainability and its implications for the very future of our planet. This year’s Lectures in Catholic Experience will confront these themes head-on and allow us to explore, challenge and walk our own synodal path to see the importance of encounter and dialogue – and to understand  the need  for changes that will be meaningful and lasting.


We welcome all members of our community to join us on this journey.

President and Vice Chancellor
