2022 CCA Symposium

June 22-24, 2022

The St. Peter Option:
Living as Exiles in a Foreign Land

Peter says, “Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15).  Whereas the Benedict Option calls, in part, for retreat from the world, “the St. Peter Option” will explore how we are called to live in this vale of tears. Peter encourages us to live joyfully and without fear as Christian pilgrims in a world of darkness and hostility toward the things we believe.  The apostle emphasize that we live by the Gospel in our vocation, so that we might give a defense of our faith and of the hope that is within us.   




Dates for future symposia:  CCA symposium has traditionally been held on the third Thursday of June (and the Wednesday before and Friday after).  The 2022 symposium has been pushed back one week because of conflicts with other meetings and gatherings within the district and synod.
