The Next Pope: The Office of Peter and a Church in Mission

Thursday, September 10, 2020

1:00 pm EDT - 2:00 pm EDT

Live Streamed

Online Only Event


The Catholic Church is on the verge of a transition of great consequence.

Drawing on his personal discussions with John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis, as well as his decades of experience with Catholics from every continent, George Weigel will examine the major challenges confronting the Catholic Church and its 1.3 billion believers in the twenty-first century: challenges the next pontificate must address as the Church enters new, uncharted territory. To what is the Holy Spirit calling this Church-in-transition? What are the qualities needed in the man who will lead the Church from the Chair of Saint Peter?

This event will be moderated by Mitch Boersma, the Chief Operating Officer at the CIC and Co-founder and Executive Director of the Leonine Forum.
