On March 10, at 7:00 p.m., there will be the I Omnes Forum of this year. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, ocd , will be the speaker at this first meeting, which will be held digitally and will focus on the interest in the religious fact that is taking place in Sweden. The Nordic country is experiencing a return to faith from secularization driven by phenomena such as immigration or the discovery of faith in adults.

He will be joined by the Spanish Andres BernarVicar for Evangelization of the diocese. In the colloquium that will follow, questions may be asked.

Anyone can attend the forum virtually. The registration can be done through this link.

Cardinal Ander Arborelius

Carmelite Anders Arborelius is the first Swedish bishop since the Reformation. From a Lutheran family, he converted to Catholicism in his youth and entered the Carmelite order. Ordained a priest in 1979, St. John Paul II consecrated him a bishop in 1998 and in 2017, Pope Francis appointed him a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. An appointment that caused great joy and admiration in his country, where Fokus magazine chose him as "Swede of the Year".

He is a member of the Holy See's Council for the Economy and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and in 2019 a member of the Congregation for Oriental Churches.
