Loving our Neighbors for the Common Good: Subsidiarity, Responsibility, and Change


24/06/2019 - 28/06/2019


Aemilia Hotel
Via Zaccherini Alvisi, 16, Bologna


Hotel rooms are booked at the the Aemilia-hotel; the conference itself will take place at the Fondazione per le science Religiose Giovanni XXIII, Via San Vitale 114, Bologna, Italy. This venue is on walking distance from the Aemilia-hotel.


Living coram Deo—in the sight of God—implies the unique obligation to make the world a better place, especially if you are in a position where you can bring about changes. However, without an appropriate framework for understanding the proper order of society, it is difficult to find effective solutions to today’s social and cultural challenges.

The Reformers, animated by the conviction that those closest to the source of a social problem are best positioned to find the solution, appealed to local authorities and to influential individuals to take active responsibility in changing and improving education, social and political stability, and economic well-being. This is such an effective approach to solving social problems that Christians beyond the Reformation traditions, including Catholic and Orthodox believers, have embraced it.

This week-long conference, cosponsored by Acton Institute and the Coram Deo Program will train participants to:

  • understand the principle of subsidiarity,
  • apply it to their professional lives,
  • inspire them to responsible and effective social action.
