2015 ROME CONFERENCE

The Confraternities of Catholic Clergy in America, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Ireland have organised an international conference in Rome for English-speaking clergy.

The conference theme is: 

Quo Vadis, Domine?

The Church, Priests and Mission in the 21st century.

“Pope Francis has asked the whole Church to renew its efforts at evangelisation, and to recognise that in this task of evangelisation, the Church “is first and foremost a people advancing on its pilgrim way towards God.” (Evangelii Gaudium, 111.)

Our conference evokes this theme in its examination of the Church and its mission, and how this relates to our own priestly vocation. These issues will be studied especially in light of the Second Vatican Council, while also engaging the experiences of priests ministering in the Anglosphere.”

The conference will be held from 4 January to 9 January, 2015.
