Conference in Spain brings together representatives from 90 universities

.- The World Congress of Catholic Universities will be held August 12-14 in the Spanish city of Avila. The event will bring together 90 university representatives from 40 countries.

The conference will be an opportunity to “reflect on the role that Catholic universities play in the world” and their contribution to present-day society,” explained the event director Rosario Saez Yuguero.

Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski, prefect of the Vatican's congregation for Catholic Education, will inaugurate the event and Cardinal Antonio Rouco Varela of Madrid will preside at the closing ceremonies.

On August 19, a group of rectors, professors and students from the congress will meet with Pope Benedict XVI during his visit to Spain for World Youth Day.

The congress will include various activities including a sound and light show on August 13 on Avila’s famous wall, near the site where Pope John Paul II celebrated a Mass in 1982 during his visit to the city.
