How to Follow Christ In a Digital Age

Join us March 29-30 for our 8th Annual Symposium on Advancing the New Evangelization, a dynamic academic forum for current and emerging leaders to share ideas and best practices. This year’s theme, “Technology and the Human Person,” examines and illuminates the impact of technology on the human person, social life, and the common good.

Scholars, field professionals, members of religious communities, clergy, and students will present their research and professional experiences to propose solutions to living and communicating the faith within a world dominated by technocratic thinking.

“With the primary focus being evangelization, it helps to make what you’re learning more concrete,” one Symposium participant told Catholic News Agency

“It’s nice to come and get filled so you can go back and try and do your job a bit better,” another participant said.

» No God, No Science? author Michael Hanby of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington, D.C.
