Journees Paysannes Conference - Catholic Rural Life

Journees Paysannes Conference

February 22-23


Executive director Jim Ennis and Dr. Christopher Thompson, the secretary of CRL’s board of directors, will take part in an international conference in France next month. The event is being organized by Journees Paysannes, a French association that “aims to show that the profound identity of agrarian life in the service of society corresponds to the needs of our time.”

Ennis and Thompson will take part in workshops  and have the opportunity for fruitful conversations with other attendees. Ennis will give a presentation entitled “Family Agriculture & Rural Church,” while Thompson will speak on “Rural Families and Co-Creation.” The event will be held February 22-23 in a rural town about an hour and half south of Paris.
