The biannual Campion Lecture: a chance to listen, think, question and ponder

In 2014 the College established The Campion Lecture. Held twice a year, The Campion Lecture invites experts in their field to deliver a thought provoking address to the Aloysian family covering religious and secular matters of interest.

The College named the Lectures after the Jesuit Martyr, Edmund Campion SJ. Campion was a thinker and public speaker who was martyred for the faith during the Reformation. The Campion Lecture provides an opportunity for the Aloysian family to hear from a diverse range of well known speakers. As an example, in 2015 the College community enjoyed lectures by The Hon Brendan Nelson AO (past parent) and renowned expert on Catholic theology, Professor Tracey Rowland.
