New Faces, New Voices, New Ways of Being Church
An exploration of the American Catholic Church going forward
October 24, 2015
River Forest, Illinois
A conference sponsored by the National Catholic Reporter Publishing Company, commemorating its 50th anniversary, in partnership with Dominican University
NCR’s founders were journalists whose first priorities were holding authorities accountable and being a platform for a free, open discussion of ideas. Solidly founded in an American culture, NCR has been a chronicler of society and the Catholic church for 50 years. Through this uniquely American and Catholic lens, the conference will explore what might be on the horizon for the American Catholic church. Join us for this one-day event featuring Maria Pilar Aquino, S.T.D.; Bryan Massingale, S.T.D.; Jamie Manson and Joan Chittister, O.S.B.
