Catholic Speaker Series

There is a need to witness to Hope’s Catholic students, and the wider campus, on what it means to be a robust Catholic Christian in the 21st century. The primary purpose of the Catholic Speaker Series is to engage the culture from a position of Catholic intellectual integrity and to support the faith life of students. Dynamic Catholic speakers are invited to campus to speak at chapel, have lunch with students, speak on timely themes, give mini-retreats, and, for the priests among them, celebrate Mass, hear confessions, and lead adoration. The series is designed to help students enter more deeply into the intellectual and spiritual riches of the Catholic faith.
