Called to Lead: What Does a Latin American Pope Mean for Young Latino Leaders?

A Conversation with Cardinal Theodore McCarrick

Called to Lead: What Does a Latin American Pope Mean for Young Latino Leaders?
Pope Francis is the first pope from Latin America. What does this mean for the Church, the world, and for young Latino leaders in Washington? What leadership opportunities and ethical responsibilities does Pope Francis lift up for young Catholic leaders from Latin America and young Latino leaders in the United States?

The session included an informal conversation with Cardinal McCarrick on how Pope Francis' Latin American identity shapes his papacy and the challenges for future Latino leaders. The Catholic Latino Leadership Initiative is for Latino leaders 40 and under seeking to explore how their faith, Catholic Social Thought, and work connect in their professional life now and in the future. This inaugural forum was hosted by the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University. 

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick is the archbishop emeritus of Washington, D.C.
