A Successful Lecture

Many thanks to those alumnae, especially the members of the National Advisory Council and the participants in the "Success After HUST" Speed Networking event, who visited campus and attended the 2012 Christian Culture Lecture with James Carroll last week. It was a remarkable success. We are so very appreciative of your commitment to Saint Mary's and to Humanistic Studies.

About His Lecture
Flowing from the Biblical tradition of prophetic self-critique, Christianity thrives on an inbuilt mechanism of self-criticism. Contemporary debates - for example within Catholicism - over power, sexual morality, gender, and change itself are not violations of tradition, but fulfillments of it. Reform continues.
Presented by the Department of Humanistic Studies. The Christian Culture Lecture honors Professor Bruno Schlesinger and is made possible by the generosity of Dr. Susan Fitzgerald Rice ’61 and her husband, Dr. Donald B. Rice.
