The Mission of the Francis and Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies is to advance knowledge, understanding and appreciation of American Catholicism in its diverse historical, intellectual, cultural and practical expressions. By fostering ecumenical, interreligious and interdisciplinary engagement with the broad spectrum of Catholic thought and practice, and informed analysis of issues pertinent to contemporary church and society, the Francis and Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies promotes Fordham University’s Catholic, Jesuit mission and facilitates conversation within the academy and the Church and with the broader religious community and the general public.
