The Donald S. Nesti, CSSp Center for Faith & Culture brings the Catholic voice to the ongoing conversation about the meaning of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness held in common as Americans.

The Center’s mission is to educate faithful citizens to understand and impact the many facets of the American culture through dialogue and articulating a God-centered vision of the world and how that vision strengthens the institutions that govern the American people.

The Center’s programmatic offerings serve local and regional civic society in Texas and beyond by curating insightful, contemporary thinking on the social challenges of today.

The CFC’s 4 Pillars:

  • Pastoral Initiatives
  • Academic Programs
  • Continuing Education for Adults
  • Ecumenical & Interreligious Dialogue

Your gift will help fund scholarships for students in the various programs offered by the Center for Faith & Culture, as well as lectures, symposia, and formation opportunities.
