Pope Francis is calling for an ecological conversion, a change of heart and action that recognizes the essential dignity of all creation. This retreat helps us become ready to make specific changes in our lives that will respond to climate change and prepare our world for future generations.
“It is no longer enough to speak only of the integrity of ecosystems. We have to dare to speak of the integrity of human life, of the need to promote and unify all the great values.”
St. Francis of Assisi wrote the “Canticle of the Creatures,” praising God for all aspects of creation. Come join with others to enhance our spiritual awareness of caring for the earth and all that lives around us.
