Archbishop Bernard Hebda was one of the major presenters at the annual convention of the Canon Law Society of America Oct. 12-15.

The archbishop, who is apostolic administrator for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, spoke about the global impact of the 1983 revision of the Church’s Code of Canon Law as norms responded to the vision of a Church presented by the Second Vatican Council, that the Church is at the same time local and universal.

The 1983 Code of Canon Law attempted to balance the desire to maintain a common discipline that would preserve the unity of a global Church with the desire to allow for appropriate local adaptations that would enable the Church to thrive and evangelize in the diversity of cultures and contexts in which the Gospel has taken root, according to information provided by the society.
