DeSales University in Center Valley, Penn., will be hosting a series of events in January to honor and celebrate the legacy of its patron, St. Francis de Sales, the University said in a press release.
Heritage Week at DeSales, which takes place from January 19 - 23, is sponsored by the University's Salesian Center for Faith and Culture. Special talks lined up for the week include Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation on "Marriage and Civil Society in the USA;" Cindy Bergeman, Ph.D. of the University of Notre Dame on bioethics; and Mary Eberstadt of the Ethics and Public Policy Center on "Faith, Family & Secularization."
“Each year during Heritage Week we honor St. Francis de Sales and celebrate his lasting legacy and ongoing impact in today’s culture,” Father Thomas Dailey, OSFS, director of the Salesian Center, said in the press release.
According to the University:
Established in 2000, the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture’s mission is to promote the interaction of faith and culture, in a mutually beneficial engagement, through academic initiatives that focus on the authentic integration of social concerns and gospel values. The Salesian Center supports intellectual activity in research studies, dialogue events including public forums and lectures and partnership programs.
DeSales University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
