This retreat is inspired by Pope Francis and his Encyclical Laudato, Si! which inspires us to respect the earth and “Care for our Common Home.” This includes not only the natural earth and creatures, but also individual people, especially those on the margins of society and those in need. We will talk about the background from Scripture and how each person can experience an ecological conversion that draws us to respond in the best was we can. The Reverend Henry Atkins, Episcopal priest, will present this retreat in conjunction with Fr. Tom Smith OFM Conv. and others interested in this important effort. We will give praise to God for the beauty of all creation! You can view a brochure with more details, sign up on line, or call 575 524-3688.
