For the second year, the Diocese of Tulsa is putting on a conference for priests… priests, not lay people… on the Rite of Exorcism in the Latin Church, which will include also study of the Extraordinary Form, pre-Conciliar Rite. The dates are 5-8 February 2012.
This conference is designed for priests who are currently engaged in the Church’s pastoral care of those afflicted by extraordinary demonic activity, as well as those priests who have been asked to begin this ministry in their diocese, their stable assistants and those clerics who are involved in various levels of deliverance ministry.
Speakers include Dr. Daniel VanSlyke, of Kenrick Seminary, who will present the liturgical development of the Rite in the Latin Church and Fr. Chad Ripperger, an experienced exorcist, who will offer an analytical study of the Latin text of the 1962 Rite for those exorcists whose primary liturgical language is English. Fr. Carlos Martins, C.C., will lead a panel/participant discussion on offering pastoral care to those who have been liberated through the Church’s saving ministry.
The first presentation will be on Sunday evening, February 5 and the conference will close on Wednesday afternoon, February 8 with the panel discussion. The Registration fee of $175 includes lunch all three days, dinner on Sunday and Monday with a banquet on Tuesday evening. Special room rates are available for this conference from the Hilton Garden Inn, Tulsa South, 8202 South 100th East Avenue, Tulsa, OK 74133 – (918) 392-2000.
I think this would be a good conference.
