Academic News: Holy Spirit College Faculty Articles on Frederick Douglass, and on Georgia's High School Graduation Rate
Holy Spirit College faculty work was highlighted again in October.  This month, HSC had bylines in pieces about Frederick Douglass's speech "What, to a Slave, is the Fourth of July?" for the CiRCE Institute, and about Georgia's latest high school graduation rate numbers for the Georgia Public Policy Foundation.
Culture: John Henry Newman, Champion of
Catholic Higher Education Canonized
John Henry Newman was canonized on October 13.  The first British saint to be declared in 40 years, St. Newman was a great champion of Catholic higher education.  At the actual canonization mass, one college student told the National Catholic Register, "When I came to Birmingham University I wondered how I could be a Catholic. I asked John Henry Newman to help me. So now, being in Birmingham — the city the saint lived in for most of his life — I am with Newman in spirit. And he’s just set my heart ablaze for this mission I have been given as a layperson in Britain today.”

Read more about the event here.  See more pictures of the event here. St. Newman, pray for us!
Campus News: Bodmer Papyrus Event at
Holy Spirit Catholic Church on November 3.

Finally, we have great news about an event here on campus.  On Sunday, November 3rd, parishioner and Holy Spirit College board chair Frank Hanna will present on the Bodmer Papyrus. This papyrus demonstrates that, as early as A.D. 200 the early Christians were beginning to compile the Gospels together in a meaningful order. Mr. Hanna and his family procured the Bodmer Papyrus on behalf of the Vatican and presented it to Pope Benedict XVI. Join us in McDonough Hall at Holy Spirit Catholic Church to learn more about this story. Please consider registering in advance here.
