Join the Center for Catholic Studies on June 13 for a conversation with
author Neil Ormerod. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the
Chancellor's Suite, UC.
Neil Ormerod, Professor of Theology at Australian Catholic University, is widely published. He has written on secularization, evolution, the identity and mission of Catholic institutions, the nature of the Church, ecumenism and the Trinity. In light of the feast of the Holy Trinity on Sunday, June 15, one of the topics that will be discussed is "the psychological analogy" in Christian thinking about the Trinity, which Ormerod explores in his books The Trinity: Retrieving the Western Tradition (Marquette, 2005) and A Trinitarian Primer (Collegeville, MN: Liturgical Press, 2011).
Neil Ormerod articles have appeared in Theological Studies, Irish
Theological Quarterly, and Australian Catholic Record. His most recent
publications include Creation, Grace and Redemption (Orbis Press) and
Creator God, Evolving World (Fortress, 2013) with Cynthia Crysdale.

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, and Arcadia, a student journal.
