Encountering Jesus – Hosted by Social Action Ministry
During this Lenten season The Social Action Ministry is hosting:
Encountering Jesus through the Call to Justice through Prayer, Study & Action
The series will touch upon multiple Social Justice principles and important issues facing our country, world, and our Catholic Faith.
We are starting the series with a session:
On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si’) the appeal from Pope Francis addressed to “every person living on this planet” for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.
Pope Francis calls the Church and the world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path. As stated by our Bishops; These challenges are not about economic theory or political platforms, nor about partisan advantage or interest group pressures. They are about the future of God’s creation and the one human family. They are about protecting both the ‘human environment’ and the natural environment.
On Monday night, March 13th we watched the film Home. With stunning aerial footage from fifty-four countries, ‘Home’ is a depiction of how Earth’s problems are all interlinked. The film was “produced to inspire action and encourage thoughtful debate.”
If you missed the viewing of the film you may watch it at your convenience.
