#LiveLaudatoSi Canada Learning Webinar: Women of Faith - EcoLeaders

“I urgently appeal, then, for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. We need a conversation which includes everyone...” Pope Francis, Laudato Si’(14)

We know that we can make changes on a global scale, and now is the time to reimagine our relationship to other people, other cultures and the planet.

Women of faith who have been living Laudato’s Si’s message for decades have much to contribute to the conversation.

On Wednesday, May 20th, at 1:30 pm (EST), Global Catholic Climate Movement - Canada will host a one-hour teaching webinar, featuring Sister Priscilla Solomon, CSJ and Sister Linda Gregg, CSJ both of the Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada.  The important and practical work in Care of Creation and ecological justice done by these Sisters give them important voices in this epoch of change. The Sisters will speak to questions such as: If we look at the combined Vatican documents resulting from the Synod for the Amazon can these be understood as a model for discussions about social and ecological justice in biomes other than the Amazon? Are there parallels between the damaging effects of colonialism in the Amazon, and problems here in Canada?  Following decades of leadership from communities of Catholic women in Canada, what constructive actions can we take in support of the environment and ecological justice?
