Notre Dame to open new institute in Dublin

June 20, 2016

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin has announced the establishment of a new Centre for Faith and Reason, to be administered by the University of Notre Dame.

The new institution will be centered at University Church in Dublin, which was built by Blessed John Henry Newman while he was serving as rector of University College, Dublin. Archbishop Martin said: “I see the establishment of the Notre Dame-Newman Centre for Faith and Reason as an opportunity for University Church to return to its original vocation as a focal point for reflection on faith and reason.”

Father John Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame, said: “We are honored by Archbishop Martin’s invitation to expand the University’s presence in Dublin.” Programs at the new institution are expected to commence before the end of this year.
