Conference to discuss promotion of human life and dignity in the ‘New Evangelization’

.- Pro-life leaders will join physicians, ethicists and experts in family life and social justice issues for a July convocation in Camden, New Jersey to discuss new ways to promote human life and dignity.

A press release for the convocation, which is titled “Life, Justice & Family: Partners in the New Evangelization,” says the meeting will “take up John Paul II’s call for creativity and deeper unity in crafting a ‘new evangelization’ — new in ardor, methods and expression.”

The three-day convocation, which is open to the public, will begin on July 28, 2008, the fortieth anniversary of Pope Paul VI’s encyclical “Humanae Vitae.”

Plenary sessions at the convocation, which is the first national gathering of its kind, will explore human rights, the environment, bioethics, family life, and the relationships between science, technology, and religion.

Speakers include Bishop Joseph A. Galante of the Diocese of Camden, Bishop William E. Lori of the Diocese of Bridgeport, Helen Alvaré, J.D., associate professor at George Mason University School of Law, John Brehany, Ph.D., S.T.L., executive director of the Catholic Medical Association, and Fr. Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D., from the National Catholic Bioethics Center.

Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, will also speak at the conference.

Prayer will be integrated throughout the convocation, with Masses celebrated by Cardinal Justin Regali, Archbishop of Philadelphia and chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Pro-life Activities and Bishop Joseph Galante of Camden, among others.

The convocation is co-sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Diocese of Camden, and the USCCB Pro-Life Secretariat.

Registration information is available at www.usccb.org/prolife.
