Fellows

Our Mission

The Society of St. Sebastian is an association of scholars and other professionals in various disciplines who see their intellectual work as an expression of the service that they owe to God and community. In addition to academic and professional concerns, the Society was founded primarily to give the corporate witness of its members to the Culture of Life. Aware of the duty that Catholic scholars and professionals have to serve the whole community of faith, the members of the Society wish to give whatever witness and assistance they can to promoting the Culture of Life.

Fellowships

Our goal is to form a true fellowship of scholars and professional activists who wholeheartedly accept and support that life begins at conception and that we are made in the image of God and imbued with Natural Law and this reality ought to be reflected within the civil law.

 

This fellowship of our members will provide an opportunity for qualified scholars and professional activists to share their special competencies and interests and enlist such competencies in disciplinary and interdisciplinary research.


The expertise and experience of our members will help facilitate communication in support of the Culture of Life through publications, individual and shared scholarly work, lectures, conferences, and the like.

All fellowship qualifications must be met on an annual basis.
