St. Mary’s University is known for its welcoming spirit reflective of the Marianist Educational Characteristic of Family Spirit and welcoming all as part of its Catholic mission and identity. Students from various religious backgrounds will share their experiences and opportunities for engagement with others during this session.
The 2022 Conference on Justice and Social Concerns is inspired by Fratelli Tutti: Encyclical Letter on Fraternity and Social Friendship by Pope Francis and the concept of synodality, a term the Catholic Church used to describe the process of togetherness and collaboration.
The three-day conference will reflect on the last two chapters, Paths of Renewed Encounter and Religions in Service of Fraternity in Our World.
The conference will examine the chapters as they speak to community, action and dialogue.
All events are free and open to the public. Unless otherwise stated, all sessions will be held in the University Center, Conference Room A. To find daily links and detailed conference information, including discussion topics and questions and speaker biographies, visit www.stmarytx.edu/conference.
