In 2014 the College established The Campion Lecture.  Held twice a year, The Campion Lecture invites an expert 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 great Jesuit Saint and Martyr, Edmund Campion SJ. Campion was a great thinker and public speaker who was Martyred for the Faith during the Reformation. The Campion Lecture provides a wonderful chance for the Aloysian Family to hear from speakers they may not ordinarily get a chance to hear from.
