The 24th Triennial Conference of Xavier Board member institutions will be held on October 22 nd to 24 th ,2022 , at St. Joseph Vaz Spiritual Renewal Centre, Goa.

Synodality is a living expression of the Catholicity of the Church as communion. A synodal Church is a Church of participation and co-responsibility. The entire People of God is challenged by its fundamentally synodal calling. The circularity of the sensus fidei with which all the faithful are endowed, the discernment carried out at the various levels on which synodality works and the authority of those who exercise the pastoral ministry of unity and governance shows the dynamic of synodality.

The People of God journeys through history in order to share with all, the leaven, the salt, the light of the Gospel. Journeying together in the synodal path of the Holy Catholic Church , The proposed theme of the XXIV Triennial Conference is “The Journeying with the Synodal Church through Networking and Academic Collaborations: Together in Communion, Participation and Mission”.

Please mark your calendar, save the date, and book your tickets to attend the conference so that we all will be able to meet together as Xavier Board family to work in collaboration with member institutions and to elect the new office bearers of Xavier Board.  Registration portal will be open from June 1st 2022. The detailed announcement with Agenda will be sent to you in due course.

The Xavier Board National Academic Collaborations Meet 2022 will be held on 22nd, 23rd & 24th of October 2022 at St. Joseph Vaz Spiritual Renewal Centre, Goa. At least 3 members are expected to attend from the member colleges
