The Lux Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies was established in 2010 to strengthen the relations between people of two great faith traditions. It strives to instill the knowledge, understanding and skills to advance interreligious dialogue and relations in future Catholic priests and religious leaders who serve across the United States, Canada and throughout the world. The Lux Center is the only program of its kind at a Roman Catholic Seminary in the United States.
