Convivium - Faith in our common life

Convivium promotes and defends faith in our common life.

North American life hums with the assumption that every private concern is now fit material for public debate and social action—every concern, that is, except for religious faith. National columnist Fr. Raymond de Souza, as editor of Convivium, pushes back on this marginalization of religion, though from a posture of engaging persuasion rather than culture war combativeness.

We call it faith in our common life, and we hope you’ll share it with us. Become a member today.

Here is the core of the Convivium Project: membership comes with special event access, regular email updates and, of course, six printed magazines per year.
