Thank you for supporting our 16th Annual Fundraising Breakfast!
Want the Kingdom of God? Then You Need Catholic Universities
An Exercise in Jesuit Logic
Why did a Catholic priest develop the Big Bang Theory (not the TV series)? Why is the Jesuit Refugee Service bringing higher education into refugee camps around the world? Why has a new species of lichen been named after a Jesuit scientist who studied here at UBC? We will explore why the Catholic Church is engaged in teaching and research through higher education, with special emphasis on the Jesuits as an example. We will look at the need for depth, rigour and wisdom as people of good will seek to develop spiritual and moral values to frame and guide our societies. We will conclude with some challenges and opportunities for Catholic higher education today.
