St. Mary's University in Twickenham, London has been formally approved to name one of their buildings after Benedict XVI.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to its website, St. Mary's University will name one of their buildings the Benedict XVI Centre for Religion and Society.
The Centre will address economics, sociology and political sciences, with Dr. Stephen Bullivant, a contributing editor at the Catholic Herald, as its director.
The Centre was erected in 2015 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the University.
"Major publications, media activity, regular events and attracting research students" are listed among St. Mary's goals for the Centre, which school officials believe will help "make a major contribution to academic, ecclesial, and public debates concerning the place of religion (and nonreligion) within contemporary societies."
One of the beautifully built building's first order of business will include a 50th anniversary celebration for Paul VI's encyclical Humanae Vitae.
