On Retreat with Pope Francis: A Webinar with Austen Ivereigh

Often in life, certain dreams we have remain just out of our reach. I always wanted to see the Beatles perform live; however, after John Lennon’s tragic death, I realized this would never happen. Seeing Paul McCartney perform live a few years ago was the next best thing!

I’ve no doubt that many of us would dream about the chance to go on a personal retreat with Pope Francis. However, for most of us, that opportunity is going to remain out of our reach. Well, here’s the next best thing:

On Retreat with Pope Francis: A Webinar with Austen Ivereigh
Tuesday, April 9, 2024
1:00 p.m. CDT
Register here.

In his book, First Belong to God: On Retreat with Pope Francis, author and papal biographer Austen Ivereigh offers the next best thing to going on an in-person retreat with Pope Francis. In this webinar, Ivereigh will introduce us to his book, which draws on not just the wisdom and teaching of Pope Francis’s pontificate, but also on previously unpublished retreat talks Jorge Mario Bergoglio gave in Argentina.

First Belong to God: On Retreat with Pope Francis is designed around the classic eight-day version of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Through this webinar (and the book!), catechists and anyone interested in deepening their relationship with Jesus can learn how we can enter into the journey of conversion to which the Pope invites us.

Register here, even if you can’t join us live. All registrants will receive the recording.
