Edith Stein Project registration open

Registration is now open for this year's Edith Stein Project conference. The sixth annual Edith Stein Project conference is entitled "Irreplaceable You: Vocation, Identity, and the Pursuit of Happiness." It will be held February 11-12 in McKenna Hall on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Registration is now open through the Notre Dame Conference Center. The Edith Stein Project is organized by the Identity Project of Notre Dame (IDND), a student club formed in 2006, and co-sponsored by the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture. This year's conference explores Pope John Paul II's declaration that "every life is a vocation." It takes up the thesis that each one of us is called to perform an irreplaceable role in the Body of Christ that only we can perform, simply by the virtue of being ourselves in our own distinctive situation. Proceeding from a hylomorphic view of men and women, the conference will feature plenary speakers and panelists reflecting on how to live out personal vocation in the contemporary world. Registration is now open; it is requested but not required. You can read more about the history of the conference and the vision of this year's project at the Edith Stein Project's website. The full schedule for the weekend is available here.
