TURN DOWN THE HEAT: A MORAL RESPONSE
Pope Francis reminds us, "Lent is the favourable season for opening the doors to all those in need and recognizing in them the face of Christ... Each life that we encounter is a gift deserving acceptance, respect and love."
As we know, the poor are hurt first and worst by climate change, even though they contribute the least to greenhouse gas emissions. This Lent consider praying, acting, and advocating to solve climate change.
Join us in brunsman Hall for information and discussion (beverages and snacks provided).
Wednesday, March 29 7:05 PM — Before the Flood
An acclaimed film from Leonardo De Caprio takes us to every corner of the globe - including a visit with Pope Francis — to reveal how our world's climate is incredibly interconnected. It shows the devastating impacts of global warming, and questions humanity's ability to reverse the greatest crisis mankind has ever faced. the film no only gives us a sense of urgency but also offers solutions that can influence our capitalistic economy to act: a carbon tax, investment in renewable's and elimination of oil company subsidies.
Wednesday, April 5 7:05 PM - Connect the Dots from St. Francis to Pope Francis
This year marks the 37th anniversary of St. Francis being named the Patron Saint of Ecology. Join us for a workshop with an emphasis on climate action. Explore ways to find common ground when talking about climate change in an era of ongoing polarization. Deepen your knowledge of what Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si calls us to in standing up for the moral imperative of shaping the future of our planet. Now is the time for faith communities to lead in these discussions and influence our political leaders to take positive steps.
