The Annual Holy Cross Lecture is given each year by a member of faculty for the broader Huron community and general public.
Through the R. T Orr Lecture, supported out of the legacy left to Huron by Mr. Orr, it has been possible for the College to bring to London scholars of international reputation and outstanding theological educators. Some past lecturers have been Premier Clyde K. Wells, Walter Wink, Michael Coogan, Adela Yarbro Collins, E. P. Sanders, John Dominic Crossan,Walter Brueggemann, and N.T. Wright.

About the Lecture
The Chander Mohan Jain Memorial Lecture Series was established in 1993 by the friends and family of Chander Mohan Jain. Dr. Jain was a strong supporter of intercultural communication and this annual lecture series is an opportunity to continue his legacy of bringing topics of interest pertaining to the Jain culture to the community.
