Join leaders of men religious from across the nation
(virtually) for CMSM’s 2021 National Assembly

August 3-4, 2021

Pope Francis challenged religious to be special witnesses of doing, acting, and living, to be prophets going to the margins to transform our secular world in a message to religious six years ago, themes he revisited in a new way in Fratelli Tutti. How are we living out our prophetic witness? How do we “wake up the world” in changing times?

The National Assembly is for members of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men.
