The Center for Catholic Studies and The Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership are proud to announce the 2013 Faculty Retreat to Rome.
Faculty members will participate in a retreat at the Lay Centre in Rome. Experience the sources of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition in the city where Peter and Paul, Augustine and Aquinas lived. The retreat will focus on the mission of Seton Hall University in the context of guided visits to key historical sites in Rome, and lectures by leading theologians on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. Participants are exposed to the art, history and thought of early and medieval Christian Rome, with opportunities for discussion, community, prayer and reﬂection. This is our third retreat in Rome, and past faculty have been enriched in their teaching and transformed in their sense of mission. The retreat will be held at an exceptional location near the Coliseum, and home-cooked meals are included. There is room for 18 faculty members to attend.
The retreat will take place June 2 – June 8, 2013, at the Lay Centre at Foyer Unitas, Passionist Monastery of Saints Paul and John. To apply, contact Danute Nourse before December 15th, 2012.
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 primary 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 G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture, as well as the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute. 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 Institutes offer opportunities for study and research, as well as ongoing programs related to faith and culture. The Center also publishes the prestigious Chesterton Review, The Lonergan Review and Arcadia, a student journal. As of Fall 2012, The Newman Association of America will be housed under the auspices of the Center for Catholic Studies.
