This week marks Pope Francis’s ten-year anniversary as Pope! This is an excellent opportunity for us to reflect on the Pope’s teachings and how they apply to our lives.

If workshops are more your speed, you may want to check out the upcoming series by CAPP Canada on how Catholic social teaching can reduce polarization in our society: the first two sessions examine Pope Francis’s encyclicals. One of our fellow Holy Rosary parishioners is a member of the CAPP Canada communications team, so we know it’s bound to be an interesting event! Click here for more information on this series.
