Saturday Keynote Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ
Saturday, February 27, 2016, 8:30 am
“Boundless Mercy and the Compassion of Christ” (*)

How far can the compassion of Christ reach? Even to murderers of the innocent? Even to terrorists like Osama Bin Laden? Even to illegal immigrants who pour over the borders into our country? Even to atheists who hate and despise religion? In this Keynote address, Sr. Helen Prejean will share how the mercy of God shapes and directs her life and how it compels us to serve beyond our limits.

Sr. Helen Prejean, a sister of the Congregation of St. Joseph, is author of “Dead Man Walking.” The human rights activist speaker has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty and helping to shape the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to state executions. Based in New Orleans, Sr. Prejean travels around the world giving talks about her ministry. She is presently at work on another book, “River of Fire: My Spiritual Journey.”
 

Sunday English Address Fr. James L. Heft, SM
Sunday, February 28, 2016, 8:30 am
"
Pope Francis, the Environment and U.S. Politics" (*)
Is Pope Francis overstepping the boundary between Church and state? Is he smart in endorsing the current scientific consensus on climate change? Is his criticism of capitalism fair? Is he polarizing rather than uniting Catholics? Join Fr. James Heft as he leads us in a examination of these issues in our Church today. 

Fr. James Heft, a Marianist priest, is Professor and President of the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Previously, Fr. Heft spent many years at the University of Dayton in Ohio, as Chair of the Theology Department as well as Provost and Chancellor. He is author and editor of 12 books and 190 articles, and in 2011, the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities honored him with the Theodore M. Hesburgh Award for his service to Catholic higher education.
 

Sunday Spanish Address
Asamblea General
Hna. Maria del Carmen Bracamontes Ayón, OSB
Domingo, 28 de febrero de 2016, 8:30 am
"Sexualidad y afectividad en la vida cristiana" (*)
Procuraremos un acercamiento a la sexualidad y la afectividad humana que nos permita desarrollar una conciencia integral de la misma y un claro sentido de la dignidad humana. Reflexionaremos sobre las dimensiones física, psicológica, espiritual y cósmica de nuestro ser sexuado y sobre la necesidad de integrar estos aspectos de la misma, con el objetivo de superar una idea que, generalmente, la reduce únicamente al aspecto de la genitalidad.

Hna. María Bracamontes es religiosa benedictina del Monasterio “Pan de Vida” en Torreón, Coahuila, México. Es Coordinadora General del Centro de Desarrollo Integral de las Mujeres Santa Escolástica, A.C., y asesora en la formación inicial y permanente. Hace parte del Equipo de Teólogas y Teólogos Asesores de la Presidencia de la Confederación de Religiosas y Religiosos de América Latina y el Caribe desde el 2006.
