Faithful Citizenship Dinner
Faithful Citizenship DinnerEach year, the Center for Faith and Culture invites friends, supporters and students to a dinner that seeks to nourish mind, heart and spirit. The Center strives to promote faithful citizenship and recognizes individuals who are leaders of faith and culture in the midst of our way of life. Each year, such a leader is honored at the dinner with the Faithful Citizen Award. Furthermore, the Center seeks to offer intellectual charity to its students and supporters at the dinner, and each year a distinguished speaker is invited to dialogue on the subject of faithful citizenship. The dinner is also an opportunity to help support the mission and programs of the Center for Faith and Culture including the Master of Arts in Faith and Culture (MAFC) degree program.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Each year, millions of Christians of all confessions across the globe join their hands and voices in prayer for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Ecumenism has shown how important prayer is for Christian unity, and for over 100 years, Christians have gathered to pray in communion with the prayer of Jesus “that they all may be one” (John 17:21). The Center for Faith and Culture lends its voice to this initiative and helps organize events each year in support of Christian unity.
