The Most Reverend Charles J. Brown, Apostolic Nuncio to Ireland and Titular Archbishop of Aquileia, celebrates the 10th annual Keeley Vatican Lecture on Thursday, January 15th at 5:30 p.m. in Jordan Auditorium of Mendoza College of Business.
Archbishop Brown will also preside and preach at Mass at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Wednesday, January 14th at 5:15 p.m.
Archbishop Charles J. Brown graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1981, and went on to earn master’s degrees from the University of Oxford and the University of Toronto. John Cardinal O’Connor ordained him a priest in 1989 for the Archdiocese of New York, and later sent him to Rome for doctoral studies in sacramental theology, intending that Brown would return to teach at Dunwoodie Seminary. While in Rome, however, Archbishop Brown was recruited to work for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. There he worked under Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, the future Pope Benedict XVI, for over ten years. He served the Congregation until 2011, when Pope Benedict personally ordained Archbishop Brown to the episcopate and appointed him Titular Archbishop of Aquileia and apostolic nuncio to Ireland. Archbishop Brown’s appointment in Ireland is an opportunity for healing and revitalization of the Catholic Church in Ireland.
