2015 Newman Lecture “The Marian Paradigm in Newman’s Life and Writings”

Wednesday, March 25, 5:30 pm (Solemnity of the Annunciation). Reception to follow.

The Virgin Mary plays a huge role in the life of the Catholics. The great 19th century English theologian and Anglican convert, John Henry Newman, who initially struggled with the role and importance accorded to Mary in the Catholic tradition, became one of her greatest proponents, integrating patterns from her life into his own thought and vocation. On the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Wednesday, March 25th at 5:30 pm, Msgr. Frank Leo Jr., appointed Chaplin to His Holiness by Pope Benedict XVI, will address students on this topic. All are invited to attend. For more info, visit
