Let us Dream: The Path to a Better Future

Webinar: Tuesday, September 28th | 1:00pm central, 2:00pm eastern 

Exploring Pope Francis’ Reflections on a Post-pandemic World

This webinar will consider the dynamic message of Pope Francis’ reflections on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the human family. Composed in concert with his biographer Austen Ivereigh, the book "Let us Dream: The Path to a Better Future" describes this unique moment in history as a time for the church and humanity to “see,” to “choose,” and to “act.” The Spirit is inviting us as “pilgrims” to break from our “shelter in place,” and to ARISE to a newly possible world.
