Cardinals’ Forum

The Cardinals' Forum

The most recent event in this series  considered “From Sunday to Sunday: The Liturgical Formation of the People of God” … with reference to the new papal document on this subject.  Go to the “archives” below to find links to the presentations and a full video of the event.

The next event in this series is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, August 29, 2023.  The topic is yet to be determined.

The Cardinals’ Forum, named for the academic professorships at the Seminary, is an annual gathering, usually held during the first week of academic classes, to open the year of formation at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary.  Its purpose is to advance the academic formation of seminary students and provide continuing education for the lay faithful about topics of contemporary concern in the Church.

The topic for the forum is selected each year through consultation among those faculty holding endowed chairs (the Cardinal Krol Chair of Moral Theology, the Cardinal Foley Chair of Homiletics & Social Communications, and the Francesco Chair of Sacred Music) and with the insight of the Archbishop of Philadelphia. 

Typically, these four serve as panelists for the event, each offering a brief (5-minute) presentation on the topic from his perspective and then engaging the audience in a public dialogue about the topic. 

The discussion takes place in the Vianney Auditorium on the Overbrook campus of the Seminary.
