Watch for information coming soon!
Since 1982, St. Jerome’s University has offered Lectures in Catholic Experience to our local community, providing opportunities for us to engage with the critical issues of our time. We have invited scholars, activists, experts, and religious leaders to address subjects in the areas of religion and politics, spirituality, health care, international relations and human rights, ecological responsibility, religious pluralism, ecumenism, interfaith dialogue, religion and the media, and others.
These complimentary public lectures take place at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays scheduled throughout the year. Attendees are invited to join us for pre-lecture refreshments in the Academic Centre Atrium, before heading into the 285-seat accessible Vanstone Lecture Hall. Registration online in advance of each lecture is helpful for our hospitality planning, but tickets are not required at the door. Everyone is welcome!
We look forward to announcing the 2019-2020 series soon and hope that you will join us!
