Pope Francis and the Future of the Church

Conference: Pope Francis and the Future of the Church: Prospect and Challenges for Renewal (May 4-6, 2023, Vancouver). 

Hosted by St. Mark’s College and the Center for Christian Engagement, Pope Francis and the Future of the Church responds to this call for reflection on a wide range of themes central to Francis’ pontificate and his vision of the church, including the legacy of Vatican II; synodality; accompaniment; reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada and the US; integral ecology; and justice and concern for the poor and marginalized. This spring’s conference will include over 40 paper presentations given by scholars and practitioners – lay, cleric, and religious – from across North America. It is the first conference dedicated to exploring Francis’ pontificate in a Canadian context.
