A Constitution Day Conversation with Dr. Jerome Foss, Dr. Shaun Rieley, and Dr. Joseph Wysocki

Date: Wednesday, September 14, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.
Location: Belmont House, 314 Independence Ave. Washington, DC 20003

In contemporary society, it’s more important than ever to honor and celebrate our roots as a Democratic Republic. As questions of religious and civil liberty continue to play themselves out in our schools, churches, and communities, we take the opportunity to gather at Belmont House, a few blocks from the Capital, and focus our attention on the founding document of our country: the United States Constitution.

Join Dr. Jerome Foss of Saint Vincent College, Dr. Shaun Rieley of The American Ideas Institute, and Dr. Joseph Wysocki of Belmont Abbey College for “Rome and the Republic: Catholics and the Constitution,” a discussion sponsored by the Jack Miller Center for Teaching America’s Founding Principles and History.

Come celebrate the Constitution by exploring our relationship to this foundational document and our ongoing role as Catholic citizens of the United States.

Drinks and appetizers to follow.

Dr. Jerome Foss is Professor of Politics at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, where he also serves as the Endowed Director for the Saint Vincent Center for Catholic Thought and Culture and a Fellow in the College’s Center for Political and Economic Thought.
