Romeward bound

Our apologies to Simon & Garfunkel for playing off the title to their classic hit, but it seemed appropriate as hundreds of bishops, priests and seminarians head to Rome for a special Year for Priests international conference.

The "Faithfulness of Christ, Faithfulness of the Priesthood" theological convention takes place Thursday and Friday in Rome with priestly identity, priestly celibacy and priests and contemporary culture to be among the topics.

Click HERE to see the Congregation of the Clergy's schedule of events for the sessions, which will be presided over by Cardinal William J. Levada of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Franc Rode of Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, and Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski, Prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education. The Congregation of the Clergy's Cardinal Claudio Hummes will also be present.
