Gonzaga Lecture Series

Gonzaga Lecture Series

The Gonzaga Lecture Series was launched in the mid- 1990s with a view to providing a forum for exploration and discussion of themes in contemporary Theology and society. They typically take place during Lent and over the years we have been lucky to welcome a range of speakers from across the globe.

For the first time, the 2021 lectures will be held virtually. The theme of the lectures is 'Keeping faith in a COVID world’. Challenges and positive responses to the pandemic.'

We are thrilled to welcome the following guest speakers:
