The Road to Nicaea

The Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council (Live Webinar Event)
Howell, Kenneth, Ph.D.
Thursdays, January 12 and 19 @ 7:30-9:30 p.m. ET

The word ‘Trinity’ does not occur in the Bible, but we encounter this term very early in Christian history. In this webinar, we explore the biblical roots of the Trinity and follow its development from the first century to the Council of Nicaea (325 AD). After watching how this foundational doctrine developed over time, we conclude by peering deeply into the inner life of the Holy Trinity.




Catholic Higher Education & the Next Generation
Presidents Conference
Saturday, January 28 @ 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. RSVP Required. Free Admission. (This event will not be live broadcast.)

Society is at a crossroads in the educational formation of the next generation, and the Church offers the only true way forward. Under attack from the secularist agenda set forth fifty years ago by the Land O’ Lakes statement, a new generation of Catholic intellectuals have reacted by working to reestablish centers of opportunity in which our youth can engage in a genuine Catholic education. Join the Institute of Catholic Culture and The Cardinal Newman Society in welcoming the presidents of faithful Catholic colleges to discuss and debate the crisis and find a solution to the education of the next generation.


Patrick Reilly, President, The Cardinal Newman Society

John Garvey, President, The Catholic University of America

Father Sean Sheridan, President, Franciscan University of Steubenville

William Thierfelder, President, Belmont Abbey College

George Harne, President, Northeast Catholic College



The Kingdom of God

A Study of the Gospel of Luke (Live Webinar Event)
Smith, Steven C., Ph.D.
Thursdays, February 2 and 9 @ 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. ET

Join Dr. Steven Smith for a tour de force in the Gospel of Luke. Beginning with the notion of “kingdom” in the Old Testament and tracing through major examples in Luke, this webinar will help unlock the mystery of the Kingdom of God as it relates to Jesus.



Living Liturgy

The Cycles of Nature & the Liturgical Calendar
Cuddeback, John, Ph.D.
Sunday, February 19 @ 6:00 p.m. ET (Dinner included; lecture to begin @ 7:00 p.m. No RSVP required.)

Our Lord consistently used imagery of the natural world in order to convey fundamental truths. The Church’s liturgy and calendar is similarly rooted in the realities of the material created order and of human husbandry. This lecture will address how we can reconnect to those images and realities in order to deepen our lives as Christians.



Hypocritical or Holy?

Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving
Pope, Rev. Msgr. Charles
Thursday, March 2 @ 7:30 p.m. ET

Hypocrisy is a word and concept that is often misunderstood today. We tend to use the word merely to condemn people who say one thing and do another. But Jesus, when he uses the word has something richer and more subtle in mind as we shall see when we look to the 6th Chapter of Matthew’s Gospel on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. It is a rich and powerful instruction from the Lord. Let’s sit as his feet and listen.



Mission of Martyrdom

An ICC Lenten Retreat
Saunders, Rev. William, Ph.D.
Saturday, March 11 @ 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET (Mass will be celebrated @ 7:30 a.m., followed by a light breakfast.)

We are all called to be martyrs, that is, witnesses of the faith. Yes, we may face “red martyrdom,” by which we shed our blood for the faith. Most of us, however, are challenged to embrace a “white martyrdom,” which means striving to live a genuinely Christian life in an age of secularism and relativism. Martyrs, however, are the seed of the Church, as the Church Father Tertullian stated. Therefore, our lived life-whether at home, work or school-must be a witness that plants the seeds of faith and builds up the Church.



The Confession of St. Patrick

(Live Webinar Event)
Reinhard, Benjamin, Ph.D.
Thursday, March 16 @ 7:30 p.m. ET



Understanding Christian Divinization
Hofer, Rev. Andrew, O.P., Ph.D.
Sunday, March 26 @ 6:00 p.m. ET (Dinner included; lecture to begin @ 7:00 p.m. No RSVP required.)

This talk gives an exciting overview of the central, although misunderstood or simply ignored Christian doctrine, that God the Father, through the Incarnation of the Son and the sending of the Holy Spirit into our hearts, transforms our humanity so as to allow us to share in divinity. Grave objections that challenge the notion of deification as un-Christian will be considered, and answers will be given from Scripture, holy witnesses to Tradition from both East and West, and the Magisterium.



Come, Let Us Die With Him

Dying to Self and Living for Christ (Live Webinar Event)
Garland, Daniel M., Ph.D. (cand.)
Tuesday, April 4 @ 7:30 p.m. ET

Using the words of St. Thomas the Apostle in John 11:16 as a starting point, Prof. Garland will explore what it means to “die to self” by exploring the history and theology of the season of Lent, providing practical ways in which our penitential practices can prepare us to live for Christ.



Like One of These

Becoming Children of Faith
Pope, Rev. Msgr. Charles
Sunday, April 9 @ 6:00 p.m. ET (Dinner included; lecture to begin @ 7:00 p.m. No RSVP required.)
