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. Five years since his call, how are we living out our prophetic witness? How do we “wake up the world” in changing times? We will explore this challenge through the lens of community life, mission, mutual relations, and leadership.

Concurrent with the National Assembly is the planned Gathering for Young Religious, for men within five years of final vows or ordination. The young religious program, being developed with a team of young religious brothers and priests, will focus on strengthening the life and ministry of religious during the early years, building fraternity across community, and developing skills for ministry and leadership.

Details coming in early 2021!
