Annual Rev. Bernie Clark, C.S.C., Lecture on Catholic Social Tradition

The annual Rev. Bernie Clark, C.S.C., lecture was created by the Center for Social Concerns in 2009 in order to highlight the issues and themes within the Catholic social tradition, and to inspire students to live out Fr. Bernie’s words of promoting social justice. This fall event honors Fr. Bernie who died young but influenced students with the life lesson of a “Theory of Enough.” Past speakers have been men and women influential upon the Catholic social tradition.
