The Conference will begin on Thursday, May 21 at 3PM. Fully registered delegates should aim to arrive between 12.30 14.00 PM to collect your registration pack (Healy Hall 106).

The opening day will explore the historical context and vision of the council and help frame key questions in relation to its continuing legacy. The second day explores the multiple new ways in which the church opened up to and engaged with the wider world through the council. Day three focuses upon ecumenical issues – church and churches, with the final day being devoted to interfaith dialogue and relations.

The aim is not merely to have academic reflections on dialogue but for participants to engage one another in dialogue during and beyond the gathering itself.

The opening plenary sessions on Thurs 21 (3pm onwards), Friday morning (22 at 9.00am) and at the National Cathedral on Sat 23 are free and open to the public.

The remainder of the full conference is open only to registered delegates as well as being freely open (via the special RSVP) to members  of the Georgetown University and Jesuit communities, members of Visitation School and Marymount University Communities and members of the National Cathedral community.
