Pope Francis

“Come, let us talk this over.  Let us dare to dream.”

(The invitation of Pope Francis inspired by the words of the Prophet Isaiah.)

In the eighth year of the papacy of Pope Francis, we are now past the initial excitement and surprises of a Latin American pope.  Pope Francis has moved to the depth and breadth of his major themes of his social teaching including concern for poor, peacemaking, care for creation and a transformed understanding of economics and politics.

  • Come and reflect on the pastoral leadership of Pope Francis living within and looking beyond the crisis of the COVID 19 pandemic.
  • Come and explore his vision for living in a global community of brothers and sisters in his encyclical Fratelli tutti.
  • Come and learn about the renewed vision of Pope Francis for a “synodal” church where all in the church gather to discern and walk together on a discipleship journey.

What can we do to incorporate this renewed social teaching into our lives, our church, and our community?  Let us gather and dare to dream together.
