Anthony Jordan Lecture Series

This lecture series is dedicated to the memory of Archbishop Anthony Jordan, OMI, of the Edmonton Archdiocese (1964-1973). Archbishop Jordan was responsible for founding Newman Theological College (NTC), which opened its doors in 1969 for the theological education of seminarians, religious men and women and laity in the wake of the renewed ecclesiology of Vatican II.

The annual Anthony Jordan Lecture Series is co-sponsored by The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate and NTC. The Series offers students and academics of various fields and members of the public a unique opportunity to hear world-renowned scholars address topical subjects in theology. With ample opportunity for discussion and debate, the series is a popular and thought-provoking Newman Theological College event.
