From May 24 to 27, 2018, more than 250 religious leaders from some 240 Catholic congregations from across Canada and other partners, including Rev. John Pavlik, OFM Cap, CMSM Executive Director, attended the 32nd General Assembly of the Canadian Religious Conference (CRC). The theme of this edition, “The nights are laden with life. Watcher, what do you say?,” was developed by Elena Lasida, doctor in Social and Economic Sciences and professor at the Catholic Institute of Paris. Working for over 15 years in the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace of the Conference of Bishops of France (CEF), she has developed a reflection based on the encyclical Laudato Si’ on how sustainable development and a new economy might apply to the Canadian religious context.
