Bay Area Conference of Associates and Religious (BACAR, Inc.) announces its 16th conference to be held September 21 at Notre Dame High School, Belmont, CA.
Entitled “A Call to Engage this Chaotic and Painful World,” all Associates, Religious, and friends are invited to join us in this eventful day. Karl Rahner stated, “in the future, Christians will be contemplatives or they will not be at all.”
This conference will explore the contemplative practice and the resulting action that is required. Through examining Pope Francis’ writing, we will explore the mandate for political engagement and the challenge to live 21st century holiness. Prayer is not a private practice, but rather one that impels us into action. Let us together explore the call to engage this chaotic and painful world.
The conference is privileged to welcome Sister Simone Campbell, SSS (Sister of Social Service), as our keynote speaker and leader for this conference. Sister Simone is a lawyer, lobbyist and executive director of NETWORK. She is known as an outspoken advocate for social justice and the Nuns on the Bus campaign. She founded the Community Law Center in Oakland, CA in 1978.
All are welcome.
General Advance Registration: $60 ($10/lunch). Student Advance Registration with Lunch: $30
