Director of Center of Concern’s Education for Justice Project Patrick Finan pauses with statue Center of Concern's co-founder Very Rev. Pedro Arrupe, S.J. on display at the University of San Francisco. Finan returns from Lógos of Love Conference, organized by the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies at the University of Southern California, with new insights on the future of Catholic intellectual life. Finan says, “The Conference brought together scholarly representatives from a vast array of disciplines, including theology, philosophy, science, history, literature, fine arts and music. Speakers focused on the promise and predicament of Catholic intellectual life in a post-Vatican II environment. Discussions raised concerns over the need for Catholic tradition and thought dedicated to ecumenism and interreligious dialogue."
