The theme for this year’s convention was "The 1983 Code of Canon Law: Twenty-five Years Later." Major addresses were "Twenty-five Years of the 1983 Code: Reflections on the Past, Thoughts on the Future” by Francis G. Morrisey; "The Reception of Vatican II in Participatory Structures of the Church: Facts and Fiction” by Bradford Hinze; and "A Bishop’s Perspective on the 1983 Code of Canon Law” by Randolph R.
