What will the Catholic Church Look Like in 2050: A Prognastication from Asia
Pigott Auditorium at Seattle University
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

With the announcement of the new pope, American Catholics are divided between a longing for change and devotion to tradition. With the dwindling number of Catholics in Europe and among Americans of European decent in the United States and their growing number in the Global South, is there something that the Roman Catholic Church can learn from the Catholic Church in these parts of the world?

This year's Seattle University Catholic Heritage Lecture Series is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Vatican II by revisiting the event of the council, exploring its present reception and envisioning possibilities for the Church of the future.

April 18, guest speaker, Dr. Peter Phan, inaugural Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought at Georgetown University and a well-respected theologian will present the topic of "What Will the Catholic Church Look Like in 2050".

Dr. Phan is a native of Vietnam, emigrating as a refugee in 1975. He is the first person of color to be elected President of Catholic Theological Society of America. His lecture considers that while Christianity in Asia remains a minority religion "by any measure (it) has been vibrant, especially after Vatican II, and exerts a great influence on the countries in which it is rooted. After a brief historical survey the lecture explores aspects in which Asian Christianity can offer ways to revitalize Christianity in the next fifty years.

Asia is one of Catholicism's fastest growing populations according to the Vatican and one of its most untapped markets, with over 113 million members according to a Pew Research Center poll. Please join us as we explore Catholicism today and glimpse at the world through Phan's eyes 30 years from now.
