“Blessings and Peace,”--we need it!

Each new year begins in expectation and hope. The underlying core mission of the ICTC is that we are agents of hope, or as St. Paul mystically suggests, “We are stewards of the mystery of God.”
Hope is grounded in the truth; anything else is a chimera, illusory. So, as an Institute, we continue to address the sexual abuse crisis and the too frequent cover up or malfeasance of bishops:
Unfolding the riches, our Catholic Heritage Lecture series continues with Dr. Margaret Pfeil on March 7, whose expertise is racial justice, ecological ethics and peace studies and who has a long-time commitment to the Catholic Worker movement.
At the core of our mission is animating and assisting faculty in their mission of bringing the Jesuit Catholic heritage to life and to make it accessible and vital for our students. We will announce the 2019-20 ICTC fellows next week, in the meantime please see the work of our current and past fellowships that we were able to grant because of the generosity of our patrons and donors.
The spirit and practice of prayer animates all that we do. We draw your attention in particular to these:
Blessings and peace,
Patrick Howell, S.J., interim director
