Christendom College is partnering with First Things this summer to host an intellectual retreat in Washington, D.C. Titled “The Common Good,” the retreat will feature Christendom faculty, along with editors and writers from First Things, leading discussions on education and the intellectual life.
First Things is one of America’s most popular journals, featuring writings on religion and public life from a variety of authors, including Christendom professors. The college’s connections with the journal will become deeper with the retreat, which they will co-host. Faculty members Dr. John Cuddeback, Dr. Bracy Bersnak, Dr. Joe Brutto, and Dr. Daniel McInerny will all attend the event, giving talks and speaking one-on-one with attendees.
Held June 7-8 at the Catholic University of America, the retreat promises a rare opportunity to get together with like-minded individuals to discuss big, timeless ideas and how they inform one’s understanding of the issues that occupy the culture today. In effect, the retreat will mimic the experience of a Christendom classroom, giving others the chance to see what it is like to study with Christendom faculty.
During the retreat, participants will primarily discuss the place of the common good in political life, while developing a nuanced understanding of how philosophy and religion can mutually inform and shape our views on the common good and more.
