  • Holy Cross Lecture

    with Dr. Gary Badcock
    September 17, 2018

    The Limits of the State
    Dr. Badcock will argue that the secular state depends upon a viable sacred, in that, in the
    absence of the sacred, the secular tends to be absolutized. This lies at the heart of a range of problems in contemporary society, including the recent laws on medical assistance in dying. 

    Limited free parking 
    available in student lot, south of Huron's main building, off Western Road.  The parking gate should be up in this lot for entry from 6 - 7:30 pm.   Do not park in the Pay & Display lot (without paying & displaying) or in the Guest Parking lot.
