America’s Catholic Media Summit Canceled


Bad news! We will have to cancel the America’s Media Summit conference we had scheduled for Nov. 18-19 at Benedictine College.

Pope Francis recently announced that a consistory will be held that weekend at which three Americans will become cardinals. Pope Francis will announce 17 new Cardinals on the closing weekend of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. He asks that the world pray for the new Cardinals, so that “confirming their adhesion to Christ, Supreme merciful and faithful Priest, they help me in my ministry as bishop of Rome, and as ‘permanent and visible source and foundation of unity of faith and communion.'”

This means keynote speakers scheduled for the conference will not be able to attend, and the attention of Catholic journalists will be on Rome.

We do hope to reschedule conference but do not have dates yet.
