2nd Annual Blessed John Henry Newman Dinner
The Blessed John Henry Newman Dinner is an evening hosted by the University of Prince Edward Island’s Catholic Studies programme and the Canadian Catholic Students’ Association. Its aim is to honour the Catholic heritage of UPEI’s founding institution, St. Dunstan’s University, as well how the Catholic intellectual and ministerial traditions continue to serve today’s students on the UPEI campus. Each year the Dinner recognizes its annual Newman Fellow, an academic or ecclesial leader, whose distinguished career flows from the spirit of Cardinal Newman’s ministry, commitment, and contribution to Catholic higher education. Proceeds from the event support joint educational initiatives of Catholic Studies and the CCSA.
