PANEL DISCUSSION with Lisa Cahill, (Boston College), Massimo Faggioli, (Villanova University), Rev. J. Bryan Hehir, (Harvard University), Nancy Pineda-Madrid, (Boston College).
Upon the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio to the Chair of Peter in 2013, the Catholic Church received its first Jesuit pope and its first ever pope from the Southern Hemisphere. This year Pope Francis celebrates the fifth anniversary of his election. A distinguished panel will discuss the trajectory of those five years and how Francis has engaged with, connected to, and changed the American Church, as well as what the future holds for his papacy and the American Catholic faithful.
Event is free and open to the public.
