This week, members of the Council’s Governing Board will gather at Le Monastère des Augustines in Québec City for their Spring 2023 meeting (May 24-26, 2023).
The decision to convene this meeting in a Francophone city was arrived at by the Governing Board after a season of discerning how the Council can work towards better understanding of and connection with the life of the church and its members in Québec.
Accordingly, this meeting has been formulated not as a tourist visit, but rather as a genuine experience and engagement with the Québec church and community. As much of the meeting and documentation as possible will be in French, with interpretation and translation offered throughout.
The Council and its Governing Board look forward to fruitful conversations and dialogue, and the opportunity to better experience and understand Québec society, especially current developments in secularism, laïcité, pluralism, and religious freedom.
