Join ‘Faith and Solidarity in Our Common Home’

Posted on 06. Sep, 2017 by in Creation

Pope Francis has urged that we enter into a “new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet” (Laudato Si). But how can we turn the testimony of those most impacted by climate change into action?

On September 23, 2017 from 9:00 AM-2:00 PM, the Environmental Justice Program of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Stockton, the Climate Speakers Network, and Franciscan Action Network will be hosting an event at St. Frances of Rome Catholic Church in Riverbank, CA that will explore the linkages between social and environmental justice, how climate change will exacerbate many of these historic wrongs and what we, as people of faith, can do to build a more just and sustainable future.

‘Faith and Solidarity in Our Common Home’ will be a day of interactive workshops,
trainings, and conversations addressing impacts of the climate crisis, the teachings of
Laudato Si, how to use storytelling in advocacy work, as well as an opportunity to learn what local organizations are doing to improve our Common Home. RSVP here.
