22-23 November 2010
An International Symposium on Newman will take place at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome this November. ‘The Primacy of God in the Life and Writings of Blessed John Henry Newman’ Symposium will explore four key areas of Newman’s life and spirituality – his search for God and the challenges faced by those seeking God in a secular culture; his spirituality and a call to mission.
Senior members of the Catholic hierarchy will introduce and chair the four sessions; Archbishop Angelo Amato, S.D.B, Prefect of the Congregation of the Causes of Saints; Cardinal Zenon Grocholewksi, Prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education; Cardinal Ivan Dias, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of the Peoples and Archbishop Vincent Nichols, President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
