Visit to the Lay Center at Foyer Unitas

On 8 May 2013, Rev. Prof. Constanzo Adam, OP, Rector of the Angelicum, and Rev. Prof. Alejandro Crosthwaite, OP, Public Relations Officer, where invited to the Lay Centre at Foyer Unitas by Dame Dr. Donna Orsuto, KSG/DSG, Co-founder and Director of the Centre as well as Adjunct Professor of the Faculty of Theology at the Angelicum.  Frs. Adam and Crosthwaite presided at Mass, and then enjoyed a meal with residents of the Centre which includes students from the Angelicum (pictured above). 

The Lay Centre offers the laity a unique opportunity to explore the history and theology of Rome. A variety of formats include weeklong and weekend study programs designed for parishes, universities, and other organizations.   Programs are shaped by the Catholic traditions of liturgical prayer, erudite study, lively dialogue, and pilgrimage to various Christian sites in the Eternal City.

The Lay Centre’s programs are designed to open the city to you as a pilgrim. Rather than rushing from site to site with brief explanations of historical information on sites or individual works of art, we offer the chance to take time to meditate on the mystery of Christ and his Church as reflected in the city of Rome.

Uncover a layer of the city’s history as it has been inhabited and transformed by Christianity.  See the sites where popes have shaped history, where saints have fed the poor, and where mystics have contemplated the deepest mysteries of life. Our unique courses will take you on a pilgrim’s journey, allowing you the time for reflection, spiritual enrichment and prayer.
