    New Wine in New Wineskins: Krisis or Kairos?
    - The Challenges of Being A Religious in the 21st century under the Leadership of Pope Francis

    In January 2017, Rome’s Congregation for Religious published a new Document entitled New Wine in New Wineskins - The Consecrated Life and its ongoing Challenges since Vatican II - we will unpack and develop further several issues form this document during this retreat.

    Pope Francis offers us his own pastoral style and leadership. We will explore in some depth the “Francis Effect”  It would be an understatement to say that the Catholic Church is going through a crisis at the moment. But is this point of time also a Kairos moment of grace for us?
