Arcadia, A Student Journal for Faith and CultureYour Voice - Your Journal - Arcadia -"Et In Arcadia Ego - there am I"

The theme for the 2014 edition of Arcadia is "Faith in Action at Seton Hall and beyond." The theme reflects Pope Francis' call for Catholics to preach the Gospel in our communities.

The editorial board is asking that students contribute essays of 800 words or more. There is no set maximum word count. In collaboration with our Editor-in-Chief, John Hughes and at the request of several students, we have established several "prompts." These entries need not be super-academic, that is, full of quotes from Theological and Philosophical greats, but honest entries depicting the vibrant Catholic faith at Seton Hall and the many ways through which students encounter and grow from it.

We are asking that entries be submitted by 2/28/14 to and John Hughes.

The prompts are:

  • Describe the nature of your experience with the Catholic faith at Seton Hall University. Has it enhanced your faith? What, if anything, have you learned from your experiences? Describe an aspect of your faith in action, be it choir, a ministry such as altar serving or Eucharistic Minister, or even just academic classes, and how it has helped you grow in your faith here at Seton Hall.
  • Describe an experience in your life that occurred while at Seton Hall that has helped you grow in your faith here at The Hall. 
  • What impact does your Catholicism have on your life at Seton Hall, how is it different from when you are home.

We sincerely hope you will join us in helping to make the publishing of Arcadia a reality this Spring.

Arcadia, A Student Journal for Faith and Culture, offers a vehicle through which undergraduate and graduate students can contribute to the ongoing dialogue between the Catholic Tradition and all areas of contemporary culture. A project of the Center for Catholic Studies, and Msgr. Richard Liddy, Arcadia is edited by students and faculty of Seton Hall University and is published annually.
