Seamless suppers are dinners hosted by The Francis Project in which a leader from the local D.C. area facilitates a discussion about a topic related to the dignity of human life. Typically, each speaker focuses on their personal experiences working towards social justice and peace and/or working for those who Pope Francis advocates on behalf of.
