Memory: Its Persistence and Loss in Christian Community



Founded in 1981, the Atlantic Theological Conference brings together people from all walks of life to hear papers and participate in discussions on issues of enduring theological importance.

This year's Conference will explore the subject of "memory". This topic will be considered as understood in the Scriptures, the Patristic period, the Medieval period, and the contemporary world. The 2018 Conference will be held at St. Paul's Church, Sackville, New Brunswick.

St. Paul's Church, Sackville, New Brunswick Conference sessions will take place in the Parish Hall. Worship services connected with the conference will be held in St. Paul's Church, with the exception of the Conference Eucharist which will take place at St. Ann's Church, Westcock.
