.- The Path to Peace Foundation recently announced an upcoming week long intensive program in New York City for a select number of college students around the country to learn more about the Catholic Church's social teachings, specifically the work of the Holy See's Mission to the United Nations.

Archbishop Celestino Migliore,  Apostolic Nuncio to the United Nations and President of the Path to Peace Foundation, announced that the foundation will hold its fifth annual Catholic Social Teaching Seminar for college students, from May 23 – 28, 2010, with the theme of “Freedom, Truth and Charity: promoting human development as a vocation.”

A pair of students from 25 different colleges and universities around the country were nominated by their respective schools and will spend one week attending lectures and interacting with Ambassadors and other U.N. officials in New York. They will also have an opportunity to visit places of cultural and religious significance.

The purpose of the symposium is to engage the students with the teachings of the Church and instill in them the understanding that they are an invaluable resource in the effort to promote the common good, according to a foundation press release.

The Path to Peace Foundation was founded in 1991 in order to support the work of the Holy See's Mission to the U.N.  An independent but collaborative organization, the foundation works to help disseminate documents and initiatives of the Holy Father, the Holy See and charitable groups on Church social teachings. Path to Peace Foundation also works to foster human rights projects and promote cultural efforts that touch on the Christian heritage of music, art and the humanities.
