Metro Vancouver Alliance Seminar Series-Laudato Si

March 5, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Pope Francis’ papal letter last year, Laudato Si (Praise Be), dovetailed precisely with a climate-change debate that was reaching critical mass. It became an unlikely sensation, especially among progressive groups just like ours. MVA’s current list of campaigns – income justice, housing affordability, accessible transit, and social inclusion – does not explicitly include “climate change” in its agenda, but many of our leaders know intuitively, as does Pope Francis, that abuse of our natural environment underlies a host of modern social wounds. In our 2-hour session, we’ll discuss the interconnections that Pope Francis makes in his prophetic call for an “ecological conversion.”

Join us March 5th, 2016 at 2pm – 4pm at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Parish for a discussion of this important text – more information and RSVP at the website.
