Seat of Wisdom’s Annual Wojtyla Conference: Alleviating Loneliness Through the Liberal Arts

We are pleased to announce this year’s Wojtyla Summer Institute for Teachers, which will take place August 5-8.

This year’s theme, Only Connect: Alleviating Loneliness Through the Liberal Arts, addresses loneliness as a cultural, psychological, and even spiritual problem. Featuring lectures from Dr. David Beresford, John Paul Meenan, Dr. Ellen Roderick, Dr. Ian Gentles, and Frederick Duquette, as well as a keynote from Dr. Christine Schintgen, this year’s conference will focus on the ways in which the liberal arts serve as a bridge away from isolation by fostering communion with one another and with God. Each talk, delivered over Zoom, also includes opportunities for dialogue.

If you have not yet signed up for the virtual event, there is still time! We have a great line-up of speakers, and the discussion promises to be very stimulating, so please join us. Registration is $50, and you can sign up here: https://www.seatofwisdom.ca/news/summer-institutes/wojtyla-2021/
