The Season of
Pope Francis:



About the Program


With almost universal acclaim at his election, Pope Francis, the first non-European Pope in modern history, has become one of the most controversial Popes in Catholic history, surrounded by a multiplicity of conflicting and contradictory opinions.

This is why the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette and La Salette Retreat and Conference Center invite you to participate in a brand new online and FREE PROGRAM entitled The Season of Pope Francis: A Spring or a Winter Time for the Church? It is intended to HELP YOU better understand Pope Francis' vision of today's Church.

The new FREE ONLINE program will consist of five sessions. Each session will present one of the four Apostolic Exhortations and one Encyclical written by Pope Francis.
