The Black Catholic Theological Symposium (BCTS), a national interdisciplinary theological society in the Roman Catholic tradition, will gather for its 26th annual meeting, Oct. 15-18, at St. Norbert College.

The BCTS meeting will open on Thursday Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m., with a public lecture in the F. K. Bemis International Center on the college campus, featuring presentations and cross-cultural dialogue between members of the BCTS and the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States (ACHTUS).

Shawnee Daniels-Sykes of Mount Mary University in Milwaukee and Jeremy V. Cruz of St. John's University in New York will be presenting. The professional meeting will continue through the weekend in prayer, reflection and scholarly dialogue focused on issues relevant to the black community and the Catholic Church at large.

The Most Reverend David L. Ricken, bishop of Green Bay, will greet the symposium membership, and the traditional BCTS listening session on Saturday afternoon will engage St. Norbert students in theological dialogue. The BCTS annual meeting will conclude with the celebration of Sunday Eucharist at 10 a.m. at Old St. Joseph Church on the St. Norbert campus.
