Time & Location

About the Event
“We have forgotten that we ourselves are the 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…In the heart of this world, the Lord of life, who loves us so much is always present.” (Laudato Si’ – Pope Francis)
Through prayer, reflection, and practical suggestions we will explore some of the writings of Pope Francis and Teilhard De Chardin, learning how to live in harmony with creation and how to integrate the universe's story and the environment of our “common home”, this planet earth, into our prayer, our ministry, and our spirituality.
“O Lord, seize us with your power and light, help us to protect all life, to prepare for a better future, for the coming of your kingdom of justice, peace, love, and beauty.” Pope Francis
This is a 2-part series that runs September 28 and October 5, 2022,
