What is the Symposium?

The Symposium on Advancing the New Evangelization is an annual conference sponsored by the Gregorian Institute at Benedictine College. The Gregorian Institute’s mission is to contribute to the renewal of Catholic culture and the defense of religious liberty in America by engaging, equipping, and developing the next generation of Catholic leaders. The Symposium supports this mission and offers a unique forum for current and emerging leaders to share ideas and best practices.

At the Symposium scholars, field professionals, members of religious communities, clergy, and students present papers based on their research and professional experiences. It is a time of fellowship, reflection, and dialogue concerning topics integral to the New Evangelization. In this respect, the Symposium fulfills Pope Francis’ statement:

Universities are outstanding environments for articulating and developing this evangelizing commitment in an interdisciplinary and integrated way. Catholic schools, which always strive to join their work of education with the explicit proclamation of the Gospel, are a most valuable resource for the evangelization of culture, even in those countries and cities where hostile situations challenge us to greater creativity in our search for suitable methods.” (Evangelii Gaudium, 134)
