Fordham University, where Dulles spent the last 20 years of his distinguished life and career, will begin a yearlong observance of this milestone with a day-long conference examining Dulles’ legacy and his continuing impact on the Catholic Church in America and in the world.

Featured speakers will include Dulles’ longtime Fordham colleague Elizabeth Johnson, C.S.J., Distinguished Professor Emerita of Theology, and Peter C. Phan, the Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought at Georgetown University.
