November 1-2, 2018

We are glad to announce and invite you to our second annual conference, co-sponsored by The Living Church Institute.

“Anglo-Catholic Roots II: Is Christ Divided? Full Visible Unity”     
As the Anglican Communion prepares for Lambeth in 2020, leaders are asking about Church unity with renewed urgency but often with little understanding. Are divisions between churches defensible? Can they be repaired? And where, exactly, may unity be found? “Is Christ divided?” (1 Cor. 1:13). 
Join us at our second Anglo-Catholic Roots conference, at which we will take up scriptural, sacramental, ascetical, and historical resources for a Catholic understanding of the one Church as Christ’s body across time and space. Special attention paid to the Anglican Communion, as we prepare for the Lambeth Conference in 2020.

$75 for employed persons
$50 for students and retirees
Banquet: $75

To buy tickets online please use Eventbrite:  Remember that tickets are limited, and last year we had a complete sell-out. Please consider registering for the celebratory banquet after the conference as well.
