November 15-17: Resurrection in the Age of Uncertainty: 
A Conference in Honor of Sandra Schneiders, IHM

The Institute for the Study of Contemporary Spirituality | Oblate School of Theology, San Antonio, TX




In-Person and Online Options Available: Register here.

Every couple of years, the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Spirituality honors a distinguished scholar that has significantly contributed to the academic discipline of spirituality. Past honorees include Dr. Bernard McGinn (2018) and Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI (2020). 

This November, we have the honor of hosting a conference in celebration of a globally recognized woman who helped define the contemporary field and whose work is foundational in understanding the contemporary landscape of the discipline. 

Join us in person or online as we listen to Dr. Schneiders as well as a diverse gathering of voices who have built upon her work. We will also host two critical conversations discussing the history of the field and where some next generation scholars envision possibilities for its future. 


Please note that all times are Central USA time zone. 

The conference begins Wednesday, November 15 at 7 PM.

The conference ends Friday, November 17 at 12 PM.
