Learn How to Lead Like Pope Francis
On Friday, February 21, the Bishop Canevin Alumni Association hosted best-selling author Chris Lowney as their first Ignatian Spiritual Leadership Speaker for more than 100 guests at St. Paul’s Seminary, Cardinals’ Great Hall.
Chris Lowney currently chairs the board of Catholic Health Initiatives. Formerly, a Jesuit seminarian and J.P. Morgan Managing Director on three continents, Chris is now is a popular keynote speaker who has lectured in more than 24 countries on leadership, business ethics, decision-making and other topics. As a well-known speaker, Lowney has influenced many people that range from religious, to educators, to corporate businessmen and women.
Event attendees received continental breakfast, Chris’ two part – three hour seminar on Ignatian Spiritual Leadership and a copy of his book, “Pope Francis – Why He Leads the Way He Leads.” Bishop Canevin students volunteered at the event and helped with registration, parking, welcoming guests and promoting the school.
The event was a huge success, and the Alumni Association plans to welcome another speaker soon. Be sure to make the next one!
As the only Ignatian/Jesuit based high school education in Western PA, it is the goal of Bishop Canevin to educate its students and community about these teachings. Lowney will be the first of, hopefully, many speakers to educate the Bishop Canevin community on this topic.
The teaching philosophy of Ignatian Spiritual Leadership asserts that God is present in our world and active in our lives. It is an ethical and moral compass that leads to deep prayer, good decisions guided by careful thought, and service to others.
