Announcement of Kolbean Congress

As part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Militia of the Immaculate, (M.I.) as requested by the last Ordinary General Chapter of the Friars Minor Conventual, an International Congress entitled Saint Maximilian Kolbe: The Lifestyle of a Friar Minor Conventual in the Light of the New Evangelization shall be celebrated on October 19-20, 2017, at the Seraphicum, in Rome.

The Minister General and the General Definitory will be present at this meeting, along with fifty-one delegated friars from all over the world, and some lay guest speakers who are experts in Kolbean subjects. They will discuss the style of the Martyr of Auschwitz in living the evangelical councils, fraternity and mission.
The participants will try to focus on those aspects of the Saint’s prophetic vision which can be effectively updated in the life of the Order—in light of what the Church is asking and from the perspective of the work of revising the Constitutions of the Order.
The aim of this Assembly is to give valuable impetus to the present and future of the Conventual Franciscans around the world, based upon the message and spiritual experience of St. Maximilian.
