Brothers Symposium

Brothers and their supporters come together

CMSM national board members Brother Dan Wisniewski and Brother Larry Schatz with Sister Ginger Downey at the Brothers Symposium
Taking part in the Brothers Symposium were CMSM national board members Brother Dan Wisniewski, O.S.F.S. and Brother Larry Schatz, F.S.C., with Sister Ginger Downey, O.L.V.M.

More than 200 people gathered March 25 in South Bend, Indiana for the first-ever national Brothers Symposium, co-sponsored by NRVC and several other organizations. Participants represented 32 religious institutes. Their discussion centered on the singularity of the vocation, focusing on the Vatican document “Identity and Mission of the Religious Brother in the Church,” published on Oct. 4, 2015. 

NRVC member and former vocation director Brother John Mark Falkenhain, O.S.B. delivered the keynote address. In addition to brothers, others in the church concerned about the vitality of brotherhood attended the symposium.

Alongside the NRVC, the symposium sponsors were the Conference of Major Superiors of Men, the Religious Brothers Conference, the Religious Formation Conference, and the University of Notre Dame, where the event took place.

The full text of the keynote presentation by Brother John Mark Falkenhain, O.S.B., along with all video files and photos are available here.
