Catalyst for Renewal, and The Grail Australia, Present:
An Evening with John Allen Jr
“Pope Francis and the Devolution of Responsibility
to the Local Church”
How can the leadership of Pope Francis guide the church in Melbourne today –
in these changing times, with changing leadership?
Are we co-responsible – and claiming our own authority
– or passive and obedient?
How can Francis help us be a local community responsible for our own church?
John L Allen Jr is the editor of Crux, specialising in coverage of the Vatican and the Catholic Church. He has written nine books on the Vatican and Catholic affairs, and also is a popular speaker on Catholicism, both in the United States and internationally. The London Tablet has called John “the most authoritative writer on Vatican affairs in the English language”.
