Welcome Home Broncos
The Santa Clara Valley Chapter is the largest chapter of Bronco Alumni in the world and I am lucky enough to be its President. As a proud member of the Class of 2004, I look forward to seeing and meeting with members of all of our alumni classes at our events, including our Night at the San Jose Sharks, post work mixers, and many other Alumni for Others projects with HomeSafe and Sacred Heart Community Center. So please come out and get to know the MANY other Broncos right in your backyard.

Bannan Institutes: Michael C. McCarthy, S.J. | The Fragility of Faith: How Can a Thinking Person Still Believe in God?
4:00 PM to 5:15 PM
Good people of many persuasions wonder how a thinking person can still believe in God. Still others wonder whether a university, as an academic institution, is a place where "God" should be openly discussed at all. Often enough, such questions make presumptions about faith that are frequently untrue. Attention to the real fragility of faith can open spaces for different kinds of discussions entirely.
Michael McCarthy, S.J. began his undergraduate career at Stanford University but then entered the Jesuits and received his B.A. from Santa Clara University in 1987, attended Oxford University to complete the 4-year M.A. in Literae Humaniores, received a Master's in Divinity from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley in 1997, and earned his Ph.D. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame in 2003. Currently, he is the Executive Director of Santa Clara University's Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education. Fr. McCarthy holds the Edmund Campion, S.J. Professor endowed chair. He is also an associate professor with a joint appointment in the Religious Studies and Classics Departments as well as the Director of the Catholic Studies Program. His research focuses primarily on Early Christianity, including the concept of church in ancient Christianity, early biblical exegesis, Augustine, religious authority/belief in fourth and fifth centuries, early asceticism/spirituality.
