Every semester since Spring 2009, the Center has hosted the Bread of Life dinner discussions. The event is designed to provide an opportunity for Notre Dame undergraduates and faculty to meet, reflect on, and discuss their attitudes toward beginning-of-life issues. Bread of Life is especially meant to attract students who might not already be strongly committed to the Church’s teachings on these issues but who are open to exploring them.
The format for the evening is a brief fifteen-minute reflection offered by a professor on a topic related to beginning-of-life ethical issues. Following the reflection, professors, university staff, and students discuss the issue together and reflect on their own attitudes toward life issues over dinner. All participants receive a copy of Evangelium Vitae.
This semester's speaker will be Erin Hoffmann Harding, Vice President for Student Affairs.
