Carter Snead, William P. and Hazel B. White Director of the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics and Culture and professor of law, has been appointed to the Pontifical Academy for Life, the pope’s principal advisory group on the promotion of the consistent ethic of life in the Catholic Church.
Founded in 1994 by Saint Pope John Paul II, the academy meets annually, holds conferences, publishes reports and collaborates with partners in the Vatican Curia and worldwide.
“I am honored and humbled to serve the Holy Father and the Church as it continues its efforts to defend and bear witness to the inalienable dignity of every member of the human family, born and unborn,” Snead said.
