Throughout 2019 we will be hosting a series of commemorative events in celebration of our milestone year.


Newman Lecture-Allies in a Time of Trouble: Newman on Other Christians

Thursday, Feb. 21st, 6:30pm

Join us at our annual Newman Lecture in conjunction with Collegium Catholic Thought & Culture. Blessed (and soon-to-be Saint) John Henry Newman is widely admired by both Catholics and other Christians. Though Newman believed the Roman Catholic Church to be Christ’s “one true fold,” he was a great supporter of all true Christians, corresponding with many fighting for truth in the nineteenth-century. Please RSVP here.

Reception to follow the lecture.


Founder's Night

Saturday, Feb. 23rd, 6:30pm

Every year we gather in February to remember our founders...and in this milestone year, we would love to have alumni join us for this candlelit dinner with cigars following. To learn more about this historic and fun event or to RSVP, please click here.
