Students Selected to Attend Path to Peace Seminar

Wednesday, Mar. 14, 2012

Two Santa Clara students have been selected to attend the Catholic Social Teaching Seminar in New York City sponsored by the Path to Peace Foundation.  The host of the seminar is the Vatican’s ambassador to the United Nations. Thanks to donations from friends of the University, each year I am able to send students to this unique and oftentimes transformative seminar.

In May, political science majors Nathan Funkhouser '13 and Lauren Farwell '14 will have the opportunity to participate in interviews, tours, meetings and in-depth discussions with committee members of the United Nations and other officials about Catholic social teaching. The sessions are geared to help students consider ways to apply economic thought, political thought, and ethical thought to Catholic social teaching in discussing global issues. Opportunities like these help students expand their worldview and consider the rich and challenging traditions of Catholic social teaching and their faith.
