"Free-thinking" Catholic conference.

Montreal, QC -- Montreal was the scene of a Canadian religious conference from June 3 to 5 for over 500 self-described "free-thinking" Catholic priests and nuns from across Canada. The conference was organized by the Canadian Religious Conference representing 230 Canadian Catholic religious communities. Delegates were supposedly considering ways to attract new recruits to the religious life, as well as ways to allow women to participate more actively in the Church, including as female priests. The emphasis on ecosystems, environment, and earth cosmology filled most of the time, all unlikely to encourage new vocations.
