About the Event
I'm sure you have a luandry list of questions about what goes on behind the scenes at the Vatican.
I heard that... [insert popular misconception]. Is it true?
How does the hierarchy function? (Spoiler ! There is no 'hierarchy' and organigram as such, the Vatican is the most lateral organization in the world !)
What is the Pope really like?
Why can't and why won't women ever be priests?
How did some American chick weasel her way into becoming officially-unofficial at the Vatican?
I know one-bazillionth of what there is to know, and my insights are limited. But I have worked across a vast array of offices and with a diverse group of people in 10 years of guiding, teaching, and consulting in and around the offices and organizations that share *some* Vatican connection. I am happy to answer questions you have based on whatever knowledge and experience I do have. So, join us for an informal chat, and let's see what trouble I can get myself into !
The chat is informal, so once you register, we will send you all the log-in links necessary to join the chat.
We will also reach out to you to see if you have a question you already know you want answered....questions submitted beforehand will be answered first, and we will open it up to random Q&A if time permits. Maybe you had questions from a livestream or from a social media post or from another Virtual Vatican Visit. I am here to answer them !
Finally, each Q&A and Storytime hour will include a short "coffee break" where I take you to some virtual corner of the Vatican to show off a hidden gem.
As a courtesy, if you plan to no longer participate in the virtual tour, we ask you to please provide us with a cancellation notice at least 1 hour before the event.
