We face many challenges. Globalization and cultural diversity, fragmentation and discrimination, secularization contrasted with an increasing new fundamentalism, growing injustice and poverty, neo-liberalism and ecological destruction, never-ending landscapes of war and abuse scandals. These are only some of the realities which heavily impact religious life today, in its very nature of dedication, vocation and mission. Further questions around the sense of community, its style and structure, about the cross-cultural relationships inside our communities and in our diverse ministries involve our formation as much as our apostolate.

The current reality of World and Church presents a new landscape for religious today. We desire to come together for a day of reflecting and envisioning religious life in this challenging present and future.

 

We invite all who are interested in religious life, members of religious orders or in discernment for religious life, people who value religious life as a reality in the Church and especially all those who carry questions about religious life in these times.

 

With this conference we hope to create a space to listen to invited speakers, to dialogue with them and with other members of the many diverse communities in the Bay Area. In this way, we would like to share the challenges and joys of vocation and ministry as consecrated members in the World and Church of these days, and to celebrate together with humor and food, community and Eucharist as we journey together towards the future.
