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.
As we continue to celebrate the Jubilee Year of the Dominican Order, we examine the relationships that mark our existence in family, country, faith, and world. Our speakers will explore political, ecological, ecclesial, and familial relationships that shape our vision and lead us to the deepest truths of our lives. Join us as we learn from our experience as relational and interdependent members of a community of faith to create a more just and humane world.
We all experience privilege and oppression in different aspects of our lives. But how do we understand and reconcile our privileges in ways that do not diminish but instead empower us and others? How might understanding our privileges change our behavior to allow us to build a more peaceful world?
As we approach the November elections, what will be the impact of religion on the political landscape? What should be its impact?
