Online conference will explore challenges of digital age for Catholic educators

The challenges of the digital age as it affects educators within the Catholic Church is the focus of a ground breaking new conference to be held in Leeds.

The Trinity Conference: A Catholic Response to a Digital Age is supported by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales and will take place online across 9-10th June 2022.

The research and practitioner-led programme will explore some of the theological, ethical and pastoral challenges of the digital age, providing a fresh voice in the discussion on digital media and the Church.  It is aimed at adults who work with or support young people in a Catholic setting (teachers, clergy, youth ministers, parents, support workers, etc) but may also be of interest to anybody who is keen to explore the interface between Catholicism and Digital Media.

Questions being explored will include how are we, as Catholics, to navigate through this digital terrain?  How are we to live well in a digital age?  How can we encourage virtue in our young people in this area of their lives?  How can we protect the dignity of the human person in the murky world of big data?  What role do digital tools play in the work of evangelisation and social outreach?

The online package costs just £50 and includes access to the conference live, a link to the recordings of the talks, as well as a a hard copy of the Post-Conference Publication featuring papers given at the event.
