The theme for the 2014 convention, “The Unity of the Church: Challenges and Prospects,” provided the groundwork for three major addresses: “Christian Unity Fifty Years After Vatican II” by Most Reverend Brian Farrell, LC; “Future Paths for the Ecumenical Movement: Canonical Considerations, Challenges, and Contributions,” by Dr. Myriam Wijlens; and “Marriage in the Eastern and Western Churches,” by Chorbishop John. D. Faris.

Proceedings of the Canon Law Society of America publish the texts of addresses, seminars, and reports presented at the annual CLSA convention. The entries of each number represent a wide variety of canonical issues. Tribunal statistics for the previous calendar year are also included.
