About the Garaventa Center

Our Mission:

The Garaventa Center explores and deploys the fruits of faith, reason, and imagination that constitute the Catholic intellectual tradition to illuminate and enliven something that is implicit but often unregarded: the working of grace in human communities.

What That Means:

The Garaventa Center invites speakers and artists from every discipline to share their work, missions, and insights with an audience comprising students, members of our neighborhood and the broader Church to wrangle with questions that matter. Unless indicated otherwise, our programs are free and open to the public.
