Living Justice in the American Catholic Church

In 2018, the Wolfington Center inaugurated the Living Justice in the American Catholic Church series.  This annual spring program highlights the efforts of Catholics to bring Christ's love to both the world and the Church through the work of justice.  

For more information, email the Wolfington Center at Wolfington@cabrini.edu.

Catholic Leadership Beyond the Crisis

In light of the ongoing revelations of clergy abuse, episcopal oversight, and ecclesial responses we invite all people of good faith to examine the crisis in the Church, seek wisdom in our responses, and search for healing and a way forward. Please join us for two panel discussions with Catholic pastors, leaders, and researchers discussing Catholic leadership in the Church and the world.
