As Canada and the Catholic Church face a crisis of conscience over the history of residential schools and their corrosive legacy, various questions arise that must be addressed.
One of them concerns the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and its contribution in a time of painful reflection and moral reparation. Two prophetic figures who represent the best of the CIT can help us navigate this tremulous time of soul-searching: Thomas Merton and John Moriarty.
Date and Time: October 1, 2021, 7:00 pm
Location: St. Mark’s College at UBC
Speaker: Dr. Michael W. Higgins
Dr. Michael W. Higgins, President and Vice Chancellor, Corpus Christi College & St. Mark’s College at the University of British Columbia, is the author of numerous books and has been an influential commentator on the Roman Catholic Church on television and in newspapers for decades. He will address the painful history of Canada’s residential schools and the recent revelations that began with the discovery in Kamloops of the unmarked graves of many children.
