Year for Priests international congress

Today, the Vatican announced that an international theological congress will take place in ROme next month to address the theme "Faithfulness of Christ, Faithfulness of Priests."

The two-day event will be divided into three sessions — two focusing on priestly identity and one on liturgy and celibacy. According to a communique from the Congregation for the Clergy, those invited to the congress include, "bishops who preside commissions for the clergy, supreme moderators of clerical institutes and associations, formators of the clergy, and priests themselves who are primarily responsible for their own permanent formation." Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to receive participants on March 12.
