Fairfield University’s Center for Catholic Studies Announces Fall 2014 Schedule

Fairfield University’s Center for Catholic Studies will begins its fall season of events on September 17th at 8 p.m. with a talk by Christiana Peppard, an expert on fresh water ethics in an era of global resource scarcity and climate change. The event speaks to the dire importance of water — a Fairfield University theme for interdisciplnary study this year.

All the Center’s events are free and open to the public.

Also among the intriguing events planned is a November 4th talk at 8 p.m. by the new Bishop of Bridgeport, the Rev. Frank J. Caggiano. He will speak about how the Diocese of Bridgeport has begun its fourth diocesan synod, in the hope that it will be a catalyst for pastoral discernment and renewal.

There also will be lectures by New York Times best-selling author Mary Karr, and Natalia Imperatori-Lee, whose research focuses on the intersection of popular religion, devotion, and ecclesial identity.

The Living Theology Workshops will each explore interfaith questions by interfaith panels.

The director of the Center for Catholic Studies’ director is Paul Lakeland, Ph.D., the Aloysius P. Kelley, S.J. Chair in Catholic Studies. An award winning author, he is an internationally recognized Catholic theologian. For more information, call (203) 254-4000, ext. 3415, or visit http://www.fairfield.edu/catholicstudies.
