Siena Center

Dominican University established the St. Catherine of Siena Center to bring faith and scholarship to the critical issues of church and society for the benefit of the university community, professional ministers and the wider community of faith. It is dedicated to examining and furthering the role of the Christian in today's world.

Creating a Culture of Mercy

Pope Francis ignited imaginations and aspirations for both our Church and our world when he proclaimed the Year of Mercy in 2015. In the wake of that year, our series examines what concrete actions and ideas we must embrace to manifest a culture of mercy in church and society. Our presenters explore with us the social sin of racism, the need for justice in health care, and how poetry can help us create social change. Join us as we challenge each other to inspire a culture that promotes mercy, dignity, respect, and the flourishing of all creation.
