The Conference on Catholic Education and the New Evangelization

 

March 16,2013

Report

Conference on Catholic Education and the New Evangelization conference brings together diverse group of theologians and bishops to discuss theological education and the New Evangelization.

On 16 March 2013, theologians from six different scholarly societies, along with bishops from three USCCB committees, met at the Catholic University of America to discuss various topics concerning theological education at Catholic colleges and universities in relation to the New Evangelization.  The conference was organized by the Committee on Doctrine, which co-sponsored the event with the Catholic University of America.

The basic purpose of the meeting was to promote discussion among theologians from the various scholarly societies in the United States, as well as between bishops and theologians.

The conference was broken down into three sessions.  The first session treated the relationship between catechesis and theology in the university setting, particularly in the context of the New Evangelization.  The second session focused on the role of a Catholic university or college in the promotion of the New Evangelization.  In the third session, the topic of discussion was the intellectual, theological, and moral needs of contemporary undergraduates in the age of the New Evangelization.

Thirty-six scholars participated, representing a spectrum of scholarly societies, the College Theology Society, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the U.S., Academy of Catholic Theology, Black Catholic Theological Symposium, and Catholic Theological Society of America.  Eight bishops from the Committee on Doctrine, Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis, and Committee on Catholic Education took part.
