Catholicism in Dialogue
The Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage holds a Catholicism in Dialogue event every fall. These panels are offered as platforms for ecumenical conversation and interaction.
The Hank Center is proud to have sponsored the Catholicism in Dialogue series in fall 2016, responding to Pope Francis' call for action and dialogue during the "Extraordinary Jubilee" year. On September 29th, we reflected on the themes of mercy, forgiveness, and solidarity found in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Prof. Francis X. Clooney, S.J. (Harvard Divinity School) delivered the second annual Catholicism in Dialogue Series lecture during fall 2014. The lecture, titled 'Hinduism and Catholicism: Finding God in All Things,' brought two traditions—Hinduism and Catholicism—together through the lens of the saints and mystics of each tradition who find God in all things.
