Join us for an opening talk and reflection on the new environmental encyclical, by Pope Francis, called Laudato Si’ led by Kieran O’Brien. This will be an opportunity for people to come together and hear a brief overview of this challenging and inspiring text which brings together themes of environmental degradation, climate change, global poverty and faith.
These talks will ‘launch’ a study and reflection series that will follow, allowing time for participants to come back together and go through the document’s key themes and reflect in light of their own faith and background.
These sessions will also be a chance to pray with the text, and to allow space to reflect on how we can respond to the challenges that Pope Francis’ presents to us. These sessions will last around 1 1/2 hours, and will be interactive and fun, allowing time for everyone to engage and reflect on the document in their own way.
“This home of ours is being ruined and that damages everyone, especially the poor,”
