2017 FCS Conference

The Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Canada Conference

Friday and Saturday, 13-14 October 2017

Location: Chancery of the Archdiocese of Ottawa

The Diocesan Centre
1247 Kilborn Place
Ottawa, Ontario

Conference Theme: Pope Francis

The Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Canada invites proposals for papers for a conference on the theme of Pope Francis. The Holy Father has been the subject of controversy and critique from both within the Church and without, from all points on the political, theological, and liturgical spectra. While many of Pope Francis’ statements have seemed ambiguous, Catholics can surely recognize and appreciate the urgency of his call to live as witnesses to the joy of the Gospel. We are seeking papers by serious and judicious scholars who aim to understand Pope Francis’ papacy in fidelity to the authentic teachings of the Church. We are also interested in papers that seek to reflectively discern how the Holy Spirit is calling us to respond to the current division in the Church in relation to the current papacy. Papers may approach the topic from any number of disciplines, including the theological, the philosophical, the literary, the historical, the sociological, and others.
