Laudato Si Summer Series

I am convinced that we can make a difference… Now is the time for courageous action and strategies aimed at implementing a “culture of care” and “an integrated approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded, and at the same time protecting nature."

–Pope Francis 


Eight Weeks on Monday evenings

beginning June 10 through July
First session at OLA auditorium at 7 p.m.

Renew your commitment to the principles of Laudato Si and learn how you can become an advocate for the earth and for the poor. JustAct Ministry is hosting the eight-week series of small group discussions beginning Monday, June 10, in the OLA auditorium. The only requirement is that participants make a $25 donation to the charity of their choice.

Laudato Si (2015) is the landmark encyclical by Pope Francis calling upon all nations to “hear the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor” and unite for environmental and social justice.

The series will focus on ways we can convert our lives and our actions into an effective advocacy for the earth and for the poor. Topics include:


  • Biblical Justice
  • Forms of Advocacy
  • History of Civil Movements
