University of St. Thomas Center for Faith and Culture lecture: "New Peripheries
for the Church"
Following the February announcement that Pope Benedict XVI would resign from the papacy, Fr. Thomas Rosica assisted the Vatican during a critical period in its history. He continues his work on behalf of the Holy See Press Office with English language journalists. In this lecture, he will speak about the momentous transition in the papacy one year ago, and how Pope Benedict's decision to resign and Pope Francis' leadership have changed the church in remarkable ways.
