About the Event

In the spirit of “widening our circle” we will deepen our awareness of our dependence on our “Common Home” exploring themes on eco-spirituality from Pope Francis, Teilhard and others.

Through reflection, prayer and conversation around themes from the writings of Pope Francis, Teilhard De Chardin and others, we will deepen our awareness of our dependence on our “Common Home” explore the challenge to live more cosmologically and deepen our spiritual and material connection with our amazing universe .

“We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth; our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.”

(Laudato Si’ - Pope Francis)

Program runs 4 Mondays: March 7, 14, 21 and 28
