On Wednesday, February 7th, 2018, the Ethics and Economics forum, co-sponsored by the Center for Catholic Studies and the Department of Religion, will host a panel on Third Millennium Haitians as Masters of Their Own Destiny. The panel consists of Team Coady, a group from northern New Jersey interested in the future of Haiti.
During the last four years, Team Coady has guided leadership building workshops for rural working women and men in Haiti. The ideals of the team are based on strategies spread in Nova Scotia early in the 20th century by Father Moses Coady, who promoted "education through economic cooperation." This methodology was highly praised by Father Bernard Lonergan, S.J.
The Team Coady panel consists of:
- Clauvice Saint-Hillaire, Vice-President of Home Health Care Workers SEIU
- Yvel Celestin, Film Director
- Fr. Gene Squeo Professor of Catholic Social Teaching at St. Peter's University
- Fr. Jack Martin, Founder, President Haiti Solidarity Network North East (HSNNE)
The event will take place at 7 p.m. in the Diplomacy Room, McQuaid Hall.
About The Center For Catholic Studies
Founded at Seton Hall University in 1997, The Center for Catholic Studies is dedicated to fostering a dialogue between the Catholic intellectual tradition and all areas of study and contemporary culture, through scholarly research and publications and ongoing programs for faculty, students, and the general public. In 2001, the Center conducted the annual faculty summer seminar, "The Core of the Core," which originated the present University Core Curriculum. The Center also developed the undergraduate degree program in Catholic Studies with its major, minor and certificate, which in 2012 became the Department of Catholic Studies. The Center continues to support the Department with scholarship aid and its ongoing program of co-curricular activities.
Focusing on the central role of the faculty, the Center is the sponsor of regular Faculty Development programs, including lectures, seminars and retreats. The Center also administers two national faculty development programs: Collegium: A Colloquy on Faith and Intellectual Life, and The Lilly Fellows Program.
The Center maintains a global focus in international scholarship and is the home of the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture, as well as the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute. The Institutes offer opportunities for study and research, as well as ongoing programs related to faith and culture. In addition, the Micah Institute for Business and Economics concentrates on communicating Catholic Social Teaching and ethics to business education at Seton Hall and the wider business community. The Center also publishes the prestigious Chesterton Review, The Lonergan Review.
