Pope Francis: One Year After His Election
This panel discussion will include syndicated columnist Mark Shields and Fr. Jason Welle, OFM, a Washington-based Franciscan priest. They will discuss the first year of Pope Francis’ pontificate and the change that he has brought to the Catholic Church and the global conversation about Christianity. Susan Page, Washington-bureau chief for USA Today and an elder at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, will serve as moderator. This event is free and open to the public.
Lisa will speak on the contemporary Protestant world and how it can relate and respond to Pope Francis’ leadership. She will discuss social justice mobilization and the places for joint Protestant-Catholic work in the light of Pope Francis’ priorities.
A worship service will follow the panel discussion at 11:00am and all are invited to stay.
