The Archdiocese of Cincinnati is pleased to announce the upcoming "Seeking for a City" Symposium on Fr. Clarence Rivers and “What We Have Seen and HeardNovember 22-24 at the University of Dayton's Curran place. 

In-person presenters are sought for the Symposium at University of Dayton who will:

  • Engage Symposium participants in active learning and reflection on these themes (workshops or presentations are sought, rather than papers); 
  • Craft and deliver an in-person presentation offering innovative perspectives and scholarship on these themes, demonstrating their continued relevance; 
  • Be a present and active participant in all Symposium events (Friday-Sunday morning) as possible. (Funds will be provided for travel; see below.)
