Connections: The Significance of Pope Francis

Jan 28, 2015

We examine the significance of Pope Francis to the Catholic Church. His public statements appear to be significantly further left on social issues than his predecessor.

  • Fr. George Heyman, president of St. Bernard's School of Theology and Ministry in Pittsford
  • Fr. Edward Salmon, McQuaid Jesuit High School
  • Nora Bradbury-Haehl, director of faith formation at St. Patrick's Church in Victor
