Welcome to the 2016 Congress of Abbots website! I look forward to welcoming all of the abbots and conventual priors to the Eternal City in September. The preparatory committee has been working diligently to provide us with an interesting and spiritually uplifting encounter together. One of their innovations is this website, which contains the information you need regarding the congress program, registration, lodging, workshops and your travels to Rome. Let us continue to pray for one another that the Spirit will guide and animate our preparations and deliberations together, so “that in all things God may be glorified" (RB 57,9).
