Gabriola United and St. Martin of Tours Church

Pope FrancisThe Gabriola Ecumenical Society invites you to attend a morning presentation ~ reflections and stories of transformational change in the lives of Pope Francis and St. Francis of Assisi. This will be led by Rev Andrew Twiddy, an Anglican priest who will lead us in dialogue about the implications of “the Francis effect” for living in today’s world. The topic of transformational change, will be examined  by looking at the life and work of Pope Francis, and his inspiration St. Francis of Assisi, as witnessed in the recent environmental encyclical “Laudato Si”.

Rev. Twiddy recently completed a week of study and pilgrimage in Rome and Assisi, undertaking a course entitled “The Francis Effect” at the Anglican Centre in Rome, and will share with us some of his observations, stories, and experiences. At this time he experienced a range of exceptional speakers, visits to the Vatican, Pope Francis’s general audience, and visits to the Franciscan sites in Assisi.

We invite all and any, from any faith background or none, to be in dialogue with him about the implications of “the Francis effect” for living in today’s world.

Bring a bag lunch so conversation can continue over lunch!
