Dahlgren Dialogues

Dahlgren Dialogues

The Dahlgren Dialogues are a series of substantive conversations with experienced leaders in relevant fields on current topics at the intersection of faith and public life. Co-sponsored with the Georgetown Office of Mission and Ministry, these are held in the Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart in the context of prayer and reflection. The community can gather in prayerful reflection while listening to respected religious leaders, scholars, policymakers, and other experts on some of the most pressing moral and political issues of our time.
