Vatican II for the Next Generation Conference
Saint Paul University is proud to present the Vatican II for the Next Generation conference, beginning on Sept. 27, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. and ending on Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m.
Last October, the University officially launched the Research Centre for Vatican II and 21st Century Catholicism. This Research Centre promotes inter-university collaborative research on the Second Vatican Council and its importance for the Church of the 21st century in dialogue with Christian churches, other religions and society. The upcoming conference is the first major event to be organized by the Centre and is directly related to its mission.
The three main lectures will be given by Christoph Theobald, SJ, Professor of Fundamental and Dogmatic Theology at Centre Sèvres, Paris; Cardinal Peter Turkson, President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace in Rome; and Richard R. Gaillardetz, Joseph McCarthy Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology at Boston College. A number of workshops and plenary sessions will also be offered.
