2016 Clergy Conference with Fr. Richard Rohr
May 17-19, 2016 at The Village at Breckenridge
I am pleased to announce that at this year’s Clergy Conference, May 17-19, our speaker will be Father Richard Rohr.
Father Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. He is a Franciscan priest and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he is academic Dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. Father Richard’s teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy (practices of contemplation and self-emptying, expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized). Father Richard is the author of numerous books, including Everything Belongs, Adam’s Return, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, Immortal Diamond, and Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi.
This year’s conference will be held at The Village in Breckenridge. For our common life, it is my expectation that all active priests in the diocese will be present. For active deacons, because of your commitment to the annual diaconal retreat, your participation is optional. Retired priests are welcome, pending space availability.
As always, I thank God daily for you, your leadership, and for the privilege of sharing with you in our common life and ministry. I look forward to seeing you at Clergy Conference.
Bishop Rob O’Neill
