The Albert Cardinal Meyer Lecture Series began in 1984. It was named after Cardinal Meyer to recognize his significant influence on the Church. He was a man of great intelligence who spoke eloquently on the values promoted by the Church. Since that time, a distinguished list of speakers has participated. Recently guest lecturers include: Rev. Kevin FitzGerald, S.J., Paula M. Stannard, Esq., Most Rev. Arthur Roche, Sherry Anne Weddell and Dr. William Lane Craig. In past years we were pleased to have Dr. Christian Smith as our guest lecturer and Most Rev. Robert McElroy, Bishop of San Diego.
