Pope Francis focus of talk at St. Gabriel

St. Gabriel Catholic Church in Charlotte will present “Pope Francis: Taking the World by Storm,” a free 90-minute program at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 10).

Monsignor Henry Kriegel, pastor of two inner-city Catholic churches in Erie, Pa., will examine how the popular pontiff has stressed tolerance, mercy and  hope. He’ll also suggest what’s ahead for Francis’ papacy.

St. Gabriel is at 3016 Providence Road. For more information: 704-364-5431.
