New Catholic College in London Giving Students ‘Closer Relationship’ with Catholic Faith
7/23/2015
Benedictus College, a new Catholic college in London inspired by the writings of Blessed John Henry Newman, is continuing to offer a unique liberal arts experience that is unavailable elsewhere in the U.K., The Cardinal Newman Society learned in a recent interview with the director of the college.

The curriculum at Benedictus is unique because it “proposes a deep immersion in the European cultural tradition with exposure at first hand to medieval and early modern art and architecture” as well as great literature in a “fully integrated course,” said Dr. Clare Hornsby, the director of Benedictus. Works of art are taught alongside texts as guides for understanding the culture and forming “a closer relationship with the Catholic faith,” she told The Cardinal Newman Society.


CUA’s Rome Expansion, Emphasis on Catholic Identity Draws Praise from Cardinal Pell
3/23/2015
Vatican official Cardinal George Pell recently praised the collaborative efforts between The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, D.C., and the Australian Catholic University (ACU), as the institutions prepare to open a joint study-abroad center in Rome, according to the National Catholic Register. The Center will reportedly help CUA expand its study abroad program and encourage a true understanding of Catholic identity and education.

The three-continent partnership between the Universities, which The Cardinal Newman Society reported in January, created The Rome Center of The Catholic University of America and the Australian Catholic University, an institution “dedicated to Catholic education,” the Register reported.

Studying in Rome can be immensely significant in the formation of students as “Rome has much to offer, humanly and religiously,” Cardinal Pell, a former ACU board of trustees chairman and current prefect of the Vatican’s Secretariat of Economy, reportedly stated. “I wish the organizers every success for the years ahead. It is another fine example of American-Australian cooperation.”
