The fundamental relationship between Catholicism and a Catholic university is the focus of the 2011 William J. Kelly, S.J., Lecture on Thursday, April 28, in David A. Straz, Jr., Hall, 606 N. 13th Street, room 105. Free and open to the public, “What’s at the Heart of a Catholic University” will be presented by Patrick Carey, Marquette University’s William J. Kelly, S.J., Chair in Catholic Theology.
A university is not a church and the Catholic Church is not a university. So, what is the fundamental relationship between Catholicism and the university? Does the presence of a campus ministry, a theology department or an emphasis on social justice constitute the heart of a Catholic university? Or, is it something else? Carey will focus on these questions and argue that a Catholic university underlines an inherent relationship between learning, teaching, research and faith.
Carey’s research areas include the history of Christian theology, American Catholic life and thought, and Christian life and thought in the United States. He received a bachelor of arts degree from St. John’s University, a Master’s of Divinity from St. John’s Seminary and a doctoral degree from Fordham University.
