Christendom College President Dr. Timothy O'Donnell was a guest on EWTN Radio's Celtic Connections on February 23. O'Donnell joined host Kathy Sinnott for the weekly one-hour program which covers a Catholic view of events in Ireland, Great Britain and Europe.
On the show, O'Donnell discussed the state of Catholic education in Ireland. He also mentioned Christendom's launch of the St. Columcille Institute in Ireland to be held this summer, from July 20 - August 7, 2013. Here's more from the College on the Institute:
The program will seek to strengthen the faith and deepen the understanding of young Catholic leaders through a thorough catechesis, insuring that participants develop the ability both to evangelize and defend the Faith within secular society. Participants will also examine the patrimony of Western Christian Civilization through an in-depth study of history and literature.
The Institute invites the youth of both the United States and Ireland to experience an awareness of the spiritual depth of the Catholic culture of Ireland that has enriched and determined much of the history of Europe, the United States, and the world. With its Gaelic roots, Ireland remains the culturally dominant English-speaking Catholic civilization in the world. Bringing young people together from the United States and Ireland will occasion fruitful dialogue and an exchange of ideas and experiences, reawakening a love of our mutual heritage and energizing a determined hope for a revival of Christian faith and culture.
