Dr. Massimo Faggioli, a theology and religious studies professor at Villanova University in Philadelphia, offers a live stream presentation, “Catholicity in an Evolving Global Church.” His talk is from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. EDT Thursday, June 10, 2021, through Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
From his election in 2013, Pope Francis’ papacy has opened Catholicism to a new sense of the global dimension. Dr. Faggioli discusses this new relationship between Catholicism and globalization, which offers a new understanding of the geography of the Church, its relationship with different faith traditions, and civil co-existence in one human family.
A columnist for Commonweal and La Croix International, Dr. Faggioli has written a number of books, most recently The Liminal Papacy of Pope Francis: Moving Toward Global Community (Orbis Books, 2020) and Joe Biden and Catholicism in the United States (Bayard, 2021).
The presentation is offered at no cost, but donations are appreciated. Registration is required for the live stream link. Registrations may also be made by contacting Weber Center at 517-266-4000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
