The JOHN CARDINAL FOLEY CHAIR
of Homiletics & Social Communications
Begun in 2013-14, the John Cardinal Foley Chair seeks to support the work of the Catholic Church in the realm of social communications by teaching seminary students and church groups, working with staff in parishes and (arch)dioceses, and engaging in dialogue with journalists and media professionals.
This endowed chair is a faculty position named in honor of His Eminence John Cardinal Foley (1935-2011), a Philadelphia native who served the universal Church as President of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications (1984-2007) and Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem (2007-2011).
The work of the Cardinal Foley Chair is guided by an Advisory Committee appointed by the Rector of the Seminary. The members of the committee are professionals in the world of social communications, seminary education, and church life. The committee also benefits from the insights of national and international "consultors" in the realm of media and communications.
