The Francis and Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies advances knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of American Catholicism within the academy and the church, and with the broader religious community and general public. We educate rising generations of informed Catholic citizens. We foster ecumenical, interreligious, and interdisciplinary engagement with Catholic thought and practice. And we promote informed and compassionate analysis of the critical religious and social issues of our time.
