The Marianists, through Partnering with the Poor programs, have been serving the poorest of the poor in India and Eastern Africa for decades. Through education, job training and empowerment programs, they help people lift themselves out of desperate poverty and into lives of hope. They serve more than 12,000 people, primarily children and women, each year.
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.
