posted by Mike on March 4th, 2007

Seeking and Working for Social Justice and Peace as Guided by the Nine Themes of Catholic Social Teaching: An Easter Novena and Conference at Anna Maria College, 50 Sunset Lane, Paxton, Massachusetts.

April 10th through 21st, 2007

The Theology and Religious Studies Community at Anna Maria College, Paxton, MA invites you to a multi-day conference on the nine themes of Catholic Social Teaching. Each day of the conference is devoted to one of the nine themes. This spring conference purposely coincides with Anna Maria’s student musical, “Cotton Patch Gospel” by Harry Chapin which will be presented on the evenings of Thursday, April 12 and Friday, April 13 at 7 PM.

The Novena/Conference aims to increase understanding of and enthusiasm for the faithful pursuit of social justice and peace called for by Scriptural inspiration and admonition, Christian tradition, and the century-plus old promulgation of social encyclicals issued by recent Popes. The Conference will also attend to the documents of the Ecumenical Councils and select pastoral letters issued by Bishops’ conferences.

    Free and open to the public. I’m holding off on posting the full schedule until the Anna Maria press office finalizes things.
