A Jesuit Pope Named Francis


05 Apr 6:30-8pm

A Jesuit Pope Named Francis

Four years ago, the Catholic Church elected the first Jesuit pope. He was also the first from Latin America and the first pope named “Francis.” In four years, the Pope’s Jesuit identity, Latin American perspective, and Franciscan agenda have shaped a humble new way of living out the papacy and have raised a challenging new call to Catholics and the world to encounter and join in solidarity with others.

A distinguished panel will outline Pope Francis’ Ignatian roots; his strong leadership and surprising impact; and how his Ignatian spirituality, humble ways, and powerful words and actions have changed the Church and challenged the world. In particular, this dialogue will explore what Pope Francis’ message means for Georgetown alumni and other young adults in their personal, spiritual, professional, and public lives.

Featuring:

  • Patrick Conroy, S.J.,  chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives; hosted Pope Francis when the Pope visited the Capitol in September 2015
  • Mark K. Shriver, president of Save the Children Action Network; author of Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis (2016) and A Good Man: Rediscovering my Father, Sargent Shriver (2012)
  • Michelle Siemietkowski (C’92, G’98), director for graduate and undergraduate student formation in the Office of Mission and Ministry at Georgetown University
