The last several decades after Vatican II have seen the rise of a new consciousness of priestly identity within priests who are members of congregations of consecrated life.
This conference will explore what is distinctive about the way religious live out their priestly ministry:
- as members of a distinct community
- with distinct charisms
- according to particular vows or promises
