Trinity Institute Conference 2012

“Our task is now to be radical Christian communities in the here and now, not fossils of a bygone reality, not leftovers from an earlier golden age. Now we need new wisdom and a new kind of struggle to determine what we must be and do in the midst of these changing times.” Sr. Joan Chittister OSB.

Due to the Superstorm Sandy, the Trinity Conference has been rescheduled the Conference for December 7 to 9. Let us pray that no further storms hit the eastern seaboard of the US! The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Radical Christian Life: Equipping Ourselves for Social Change’ and it runs from Friday evening December 7 (at 5:30 p.m.) to Sunday afternoon, December 9. Sr. Joan Chittister OSB, ably assisted by a group of theologians, spiritual directors and Christian activists as workshop leaders, will be the keynote speaker. Father Richard Rohr OFM, of the Center for Action and Contemplation, will be the preacher at the closing Eucharist on December 9 (we will be able to view this portion of the Conference   at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday rather than in real time, because it will be during our worship time).

Registration is $65.00 per person ($110.00 per couple) and $55.00 for students. You can register by calling Rene or Roger in the Cathedral office, 204-586-8385, Ext.11 Cheques should be made payable to St. John’s Cathedral.
