About CLA Conference, 2023

The CLA conference is part of a series of pilot programs aimed at mobilizing young lay African Catholics for substantial theological education, pastoral ministry, and public engagement in service to Africa and the global Church. Themed “In Solidarity with the Church in Africa”, this second edition of the conference focuses on theological engagements within and between the Church in Africa and the United States. The conference brings together over 200 participants including scholars, students, and pastoral agents from across Africa and the United States to reflect on a range of topics including: reimagining solidarity; solidarity and theological inclusion; solidarity and economic justice; co-responsibility and collaborative ministry in the Church's mission; the Church in the United States in solidarity with the Church in Africa; blessings and challenges of church life in America/Africa: lessons for and from Africa/America; what the Church in the U.S and Africa can learn from each other’s liturgical cultures; theology as vocation and career; and the missing voices at the Church’s theological orchestra.
