"As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people — whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter."
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler (1997)
Newman Connection

iFACTS, the Institute for Advancing Catholic Thought & Studies, offers a college-level curriculum to students across the country. Taught by Chad-Michael Cunningham, classes will prove to be rigorous and insightful, hoping to reveal the richness and depth of the Catholic Faith. iFACTS is based in Nashville, TN and is taught regularly on the campus of Vanderbilt University as part of the Vanderbilt Catholic campus ministry.

Join Chad-Michael, the Newman Connection, and Vanderbilt Catholic every Wednesday as we roll out a curriculum meant to instruct us in our faith so that ultimately we may live our faith. These courses will challenge and inform, perplex and astound minds and souls that are thirsting to encounter the Beauty and Truth that is Jesus Christ and His Church.

This is a brilliant initiative by the Newman Connection, which is helping to make sure our young Catholics don’t lose their faith when they go to college.
