The Canon Law Society of Great Britain and Ireland met in Rome for its annual conference last week. The conference is usually rotated around UK and Ireland locations, but this was special. This conference celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the Society and the 100th Anniversary of the Pio-Benedictine Code of 1917. The event was held at the religious house, Casa Bonus Pastor, a ten minute walk from the back of St. Peter’s, and operated by the Archdiocese of Rome. The accommodations are good and the food is excellent. About 100 people attended in residence and out. All of the five presentation talks in the Conference were given by members of the Curia. From CDF there were The Most Rev. Charles J. Scicluna (President of the College of Recourses of the CDF and Archbishop of Malta) Rev. Robert Geisinger, S.J. and Rev. John Paul Kimes; from the Secretary of State, the Most Rev. Paul Gallagher (Secretary of Relations with States), and Sister Noelle Corscadden (Institute Leader of the Loreto Sisters). More coming about these individual talks.
