EPPC today welcomes Francis X. Maier as a senior fellow in our Catholic Studies Program, where his work will focus on the intersection of Christian faith, culture, and public life, with special attention to lay formation and action.
Mr. Maier served as senior adviser and special assistant to Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., for 23 years in Denver and Philadelphia. He previously served as editor in chief of the National Catholic Register, and as a story analyst and screenwriter based in Los Angeles.
“Fran Maier is one of the most accomplished Catholic thinkers and writers of our time,” said George Weigel, EPPC’s Distinguished Senior Fellow and William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies. “His voice is always a welcome one, whether the subject is the country, the world, the culture, or the Church.”
“EPPC has been a source of great scholarship, good counsel, and lasting friends throughout my career. It’s a privilege to be a part of it now,” said Mr. Maier.
A graduate of the University of Notre Dame and New York University’s School of the Arts, Mr. Maier is a former fellow of the American Film Institute’s Conservatory for Advanced Film Studies. He is a cofounding board member of the University of Pennsylvania’s Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture, and a board member of the Napa Institute.
