Event description

Description

This symposium is inspired by the April 2016 Non-violence and Just Peace Conference held at the Vatican. The Vatican conference’s goal was to initiate a global conversation to respond to the growing violence in our world. It is the perfect opportunity to generate a conversation in the Diocese of Cleveland. The focus of symposium is on creative solutions to peace building and active non-violence. Opportunities for education and dialogue rooted in the Catholic Peace Tradition is perfect for anyone wanting to engage in the community including high school and college students. We want to bring a creative understanding towards Catholic Social Teaching and building peace in our communities and the world.
