Serrans to Attend Theological Symposium on the priesthood

Last year, His Eminence Marc Cardinal Ouellet, Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, invited leaders of Serra International to attend the Theological Symposium on the priesthood taking place next week, Feb. 17-19, 2022, in Vatican City. Entitled “Toward a Fundamental Theology of Priesthood,” this symposium will discuss and examine multiple issues about the priesthood in the worldwide Church, including vocations, interactions with laity, celibacy, and the relationship between the fundamental priesthood of the baptized (that is, all of us faithful) and the ministerial priesthood (men who have received the Sacrament of Holy Orders). Honored and humbled to accept the Cardinal's invitation to be present at such an event, a handful of Serrans from around the world will attend the symposium. If you are there, please stop by our exhibit and say hello! And please pray for the safety of our delegation in their travels. Serra International is the only lay organization completely devoted to fostering, affirming and supporting vocations to the ministerial priesthood and consecrated religious life. It is also the only lay organization aggregated to a primary pontifical work, namely the Pontifical Work for Priestly Vocations, established by Pope Pius XII in 1941.
