Center for Faith & Public Life

Public Forum

‌Through annual leactures and public events, the CFPL is a catalyst for thinking and debating issues of critical importance that demonstrate the role that faith plays in public life. ‌‌‌


The St. Thomas More Lecture is an annual lecture co-sponsored by the Golden Stags, a group a Fairfield alumni, and the Center for Faith and Public Life. The series features nationally recognized speakers addressing social and political issues from a traditional Catholic intellectual perspective.

Fairfield on Wall Street, another innovate program founded by the CFPL, brings Fairfield University's young alumni working in financial services into community with one another and engages
‌ them in constructive reflection on the spiritual and ethical impact of their Jesuit education on their practices as professionals. 

The Center is also actively involved in promoting inter-faith activities on campus through helping to organize and sponsor inter-faith dialogues and events which promote awareness and celebrate a diversity of beliefs.
