Students launch Catholic Think Tank series at Notre Dame

.- The Catholic Think Tank of America Lecture Series, a student initiative at the University of Notre Dame, was launched yesterday with Honorable William Pryor, Jr., a U.S. Circuit Judge of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

The series is intended to bring direct discussion to students about religious and spiritual issues and their relation to practical areas of life. It will feature prominent Catholics from across the faith's spectrum, and non-Catholics, discussing aspects of spiritual life.

The second speaker in the series is Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit, Mich. He will speak on Catholicism and war Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m.

Pryor spoke on the role of religion in the judiciary, which has become a greater issue with the recent nominations of Judges John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. He gave one address to Federalist Society at the Notre Dame Law School in the afternoon and another to the larger student community in the evening.
