Save the Date: 16 to 18 September 2015. ACU and major sponsors Australian Catholic Super and Carroll O'Dea invite you to the upcoming conference, Pope Francis and other Prophetic Voices: Calling Us to Reshape the Public Sphere; a time to reflect on and respond to Pope Francis' pontificate.
Pope Francis' vision of faith challenges us to renew our commitment to the public good. It challenges all societies to be inclusive and just and to welcome the poor and the vulnerable.
It is a vision which embraces people of all faiths and all people of good will.
Pope Francis and the other prophetic voices of our time are pointing to a renewed public ethos which rejects the ways of greed and violence and breathes new hope in the search for peace and justice.
Who should attend?
ACU staff, students, alumni, members of all faiths, cultures and communities are warmly invited to join us in this unique event. Together we will listen, speak, reflect and engage in a common effort to renew the public sphere.
Post conference conversations and reflections will ensure together we continue to action conference outcomes.
