Catholic Universities attend International Conference on Catholic Social Doctrine

.- Representatives of more than 150 Catholic universities worldwide will gather in Rome this week for the International Conference on the University and Catholic Social Doctrine.

The Nov. 17-18 conference is organized by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the Congregation for Catholic Education.

The conference will address how the Church’s Social Teachings are in line with the goals of the Catholic university and how they can help Catholic universities reach their scientific and educational goals, reported Fides.

The work will be introduced by Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski, prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education.

The opening address will be given by the Pope’s vicar for the diocese of Rome, Cardinal Camillo Ruini, on the theme “Anthropological and Social Questions Today.”

He will be followed by Archbishop Jozef Zycinsky of Lublin, on “Catholic Social Doctrine and the Inter-disciplinary Dimension.”

Numerous Catholic universities have said they will participate: 65 in Europe, 31 in Africa, 28 in South America, 15 in North America, 10 in Asia, 5 in Oceania.
