We will be using Pope Francis’ book on the environment, Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home, as a starting point for a discussion on racial justice, ecology, and care for the poor and marginalized. In order to move from reflection to action, we will conclude with a look at relevant policy issues that need our advocacy. Free access to the entire book can be found at the Vatican website.
Please come prepared by reviewing the Canticle of the Creatures, and Chapter 2 for Part 1, and Chapter 4 for Part 2.
