55th Annual Conference – 5th to 8th September, 2022
The Canon Law Society of Australia and New Zealand announces the 55th Annual Conference which will be held virtually – via Zoom. The presentations will be available to members and participants at the times listed below, as well as after the Conference on the CLSANZ website.
During these Covid times, as a “family” and community of Canonists, the safety and welfare of Society members and others is paramount. Therefore, the Executive Committee resolved to hold the 2022 Conference virtually – as was done in 2021. No doubt, all look forward to the possibility of travelling to Christchurch, New Zealand, for the 56th Conference in 2023. In the meantime, this year’s “full” Conference provides essential ongoing formation covering relevant canonical issues during these somewhat difficult times.
On 8 December 2021, the revised Book VI of the Code of Canon Law came into force. Currently, New Zealand is in the midst of a Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care in both State and Faith-Based Institutions. These two events formed a catalyst for the theme of this year’s Conference, Penal Law and Processes in the Catholic Church.
Members pay $110 and Non-Members pay $165 for access to all presentations.
