Bro. Guy J. Consolmagno, SJ, director of the Vatican Observatory, will keynote the event, discussing “The Prophetic Call of the Brother in the Church.” Invited presenters from around the world will discuss how brothers are living witnesses of the prophetic Gospel call, followed by small-group sessions in the afternoon for discussion. Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM Cap, will celebrate the closing Mass at 5:30 p.m.
For those arriving early, there is an optional bus tour to Spencer Abbey on Friday. For those who can stay, we will meet over breakfast at the hotel (included in hotel registration) as the Brothers Think Tank leads a conversation on what we heard and how we can begin to apply it. Our conversation will conclude by 11 a.m.
Registration is $75, including lunch, or $50 for students, brothers in formation, and brothers under 35. Hotel accommodations are $139/night and includes breakfast.
