Searching for New Ways Forward

A year after Priesthood in Religious Life: Searching for New Ways Forward, was published, we bring together 5 of the authors to engage them in conversation about what they saw as crucial areas in priesthood and religious life when they offered their contributions and what they notice today. The gathering will begin with a moderated conversation with the panelists followed by an opportunity for all present to engage the speakers and one another on this important topic. Hosted by Sr. Maria Cimperman, RSCJ. Featuring panelists Rev. Steve Bevans, SVD, Rev. Robin Ryan, CP, Rev. Dan Horan, OFM, Rev. Eddie De León, CMF, and Rev. vănThanh Nguyễn.
