Frontiers & Borders: The Edges of Campus Ministry
Borders and edges often provoke fear and uncertainty in our lives, and certainly in our ministry. Yet, they are also holy places of encounter where ideas and cultures are exchanged. Join CCMA as we learn and refine our calling to open the doors of our ministry to all those on our campuses, to move from an understanding of "those people" to "our people," and to see one human family whom we are called to be in relationship with, to love, and to encounter.
More information and registration will be coming soon.
Preconference sessions begin on Thursday, January 26.
What are the perennial foundations on which Catholic universities are based?
