All are invited to attend a Laudato Si’ Creation Care Study Group at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church (1350 Hearst Drive, Brookhaven, GA 30319) on Thursdays evenings, September 26–November 7 from 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
‘Be praised, my Lord, for Sister Earth, our Mother, who nourishes us and sustains us, bringing forth fruits and vegetables of many kinds and flowers of many colors’. – From St. Francis, the Canticle of Creation
In the 4 years since Pope Francis gave his encyclical, Laudato Si’, there has been an active movement within the Catholic Church to integrate these teachings and lessons into the lives of the faithful, on international, national, and local levels.
To bring Laudato Si’ and its messages on creation care more deeply into our daily experience, OLA will be hosting a Creation Care study group this fall. We will read and discuss parts of Laudato Si’, exploring an integral ecology that considers the environment, our economy, our society, and how the most vulnerable among us are disproportionately affected by environmental crises. We will focus on practical actions that we can take, personally and as a Christian society, to care more directly and consciously for our common home.
Please join us. All are welcome!
To help us spread the word, please include this announcement in your bulletins the first two weeks of September.
For more information, or to sign up, please contact Suzanne Degnats at firstname.lastname@example.org. Meetings will take place in the upper room, second floor of the church.
