Glorious & Free

Seminar on Catholicism in our Common Life

MAY 20-26, 2018

INVITATION

In 2017, Canada's 150th anniversary gave Catholics cause to renew our commitment to serve our nation by witnessing to the redeeming love of Christ in our society.

This year, I am happy to announce the second annual Glorious & Free Seminar, an academic, spiritual, and convivial retreat on Wolfe Island aimed at forming Catholic young adults to be leaders in our common life.

If you are a Catholic university student or young professional interested in studying Catholic social teaching in our contemporary Canadian context, I invite you to apply to the seminar now!

God keep our land glorious and free!
