About the Centre


The centre supports and promotes collaborative research on the Second Vatican Council, including

  • the contributions of Canadians to this historic event, and the understanding of how religious communities in Canada have been shaped by the council;
  • critical reflection on the dialogue between the Catholic community and other Christian churches, non-Christians, and contemporary society;
  • consideration of the dynamics of change, including the elements of progress and decline in the life of the Catholic community; and
  • a strong focus on archival research related to Canadian participation in the Second Vatican Council.
