The Rhode Island Benedictine Portsmouth Abbey School welcomed Dominican Father Nicanor Austriaco to deliver the Dom Luke Childs Lecture on October 15, 2012. He is an Associate Professor of Biology at Providence College. Father's address was titled, "What Can Human Genomics Tell Us About Adam and Eve?"

 Watch the presentation, it is very good and informative.

The Dom Luke Childs Lecture honors the popular Benedictine monk who taught at Portsmouth and died unexpectedly in 1976. The Lecture topics cover a wide range of intellectual and culture pursuits.


The Portsmouth Institute is delighted to announce that the 2013 Institute will take place June 7-9 on the topic of CATHOLICISM AND THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE.  The keynote speaker on June 7th will be George Weigel, author of many books on Catholicism, papal biographer,  and senior fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington DC.  

Stay tuned for further details on speakers and events of next June's Institute; call or write Cindy Waterman at or 401.643.1244.
