EPPC Fellow Stephen P. White has been named the executive director of The Catholic Project, an initiative launched by the Catholic University of America in the wake of the Church’s sexual-abuse crisis. Mr. White will carry out his new duties in his continuing role as a fellow in EPPC’s Catholic Studies program, where his work focuses on the application of Catholic social teaching to a broad spectrum of contemporary political and cultural issues.
According to a CUA statement, The Catholic Project “seeks the renewal and rebuilding of the Catholic Church through faithful collaboration of the laity and the clergy as co-responsible partners in the Church’s mission.”
EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow George Weigel, who holds the William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies, said, “I’m delighted that CUA has recognized Steve’s abilities and I think all of us at EPPC look forward to collaborating with him in his new responsibilities.”
Mr. White is the author of Red, White, Blue, and Catholic (Liguori Publications, 2016). His writing has been published in a wide variety of outlets and websites, including The Weekly Standard, National Review Online, First Things, America Magazine, The Catholic Thing, Huffington Post, The Daily Caller, Magnificat, Vox, and The Catholic Herald (UK).
Since 2005, Mr. White has been coordinator of the Tertio Millennio Seminar on the Free Society, a three week seminar on Catholic social teaching with an emphasis on the thought of St. John Paul II which takes place every summer in Krakow, Poland.
Mr. White studied politics at the University of Dallas and philosophy at the Catholic University of America. He is a graduate of the St. Patrick’s Evangelisation School in London, England.
