The Rome Experience, May 19th - July 2nd, 2014
"The Ministry and Life of Priests for a New Evangelization"
In 2013 the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy published the Directory for the Ministry and the Life of Priests – New Edition. As stated in the Directory, “the reflection on the future of the priesthood coincides with the future of evangelization.”
The Rome Experience 2014 program will focus on the major themes presented in this document, specifically providing the seminarians with the opportunity through pilgrimages, specialized courses, prayer, fraternity, and unity with the Holy Father “to deepen what it means to be a priest” and to reflect on the importance of the “...priest’s duty to be suitably prepared in order not to attenuate his identity and to respond to the needs of the new evangelization” (Directory for the Ministry and the Life of Priests – New Edition, no. 87).
