In July 2008 St John’s College within the University of Sydney hosted an international colloquium on the special place of Catholic and religious colleges in the modern and secular university. This coincided with World Youth Day which took place the following week. It also celebrated the 150th year of the establishment of St John’s, the world’s first Catholic college within a secular university since the Reformation.
