Since the startling retirement of Pope Benedict and almost as surprising election of Argentinian Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio to succeed him, the Catholic Church has been electrified by what this transition might mean for the future.
Join Beloit historian (and avid Pope watcher) Ellen Joyce, along with political science professor Pablo Toral and local Protestant minister Stephen Hawkins, for an informal dinner conversation to sift through the possibilities and portents implicit in this shift.
Faithful Catholic? Curious non-believer? Ardent critic of the Church? All are welcome. Get your dinner in Commons and join the conversation!
This event is free and open to the campus community.
