Can Francis Change the Church?
October 7, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Thomas Sweetser, SJ will share information related to his most recent book, Can Francis Change the Church? How American Catholics Are Responding To His Leadership. The presentation will include comments from those interviewed both before and after the election of Pope Francis in 2013. The insights came from those who were once active Catholics but now have left the Church, as well as from those who remain members but seek more change. Quotes presented during the presentation will center on Church authority, spirituality, sexuality, the role of women in the Catholic Church, outreach to those on the margins and parish life.
