Bernardin Center at CTU
The funding for the Bernardin Center at CTU has the dual mission of providing annual support for scholarships, activities, and programs, as well as building an endowment to sustain it for the long-term.
The Bernardin Center at CTU has many distinctive initiatives which include:
Catholic Common Ground Initiative, which works to lessen polarities and divisions that weaken the communion of the Church.
The Catholic-Jewish Studies Program and the Catholic-Muslim Studies Program both offer opportunities for interreligious dialogue among the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faith communities.
Endowed Faculty Chairs: Crown-Ryan Chair of Jewish Studies; Erica and Harry John Family Chair of Catholic Theological Ethics; and Vatican Council II Chair of Theology.
The In Good Faith dinner series brings together members of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities for education and fellowship.
