The online event includes:
  • A discussion following Pope Francis’ address to Congress and the United Nations General Assembly about caring for our common home;
  • An update on the Church's ongoing work to assist communities to become more resilient in the face of changing weather patterns, drought, and natural disasters; An opportunity to learn how you can take action on this issue; and,
  • A chance to ask questions and engage in dialogue with staff members who’ve recently traveled to see the impacts of climate change firsthand and policy experts on this issue.
Background: Our Holy Father has called on us all to take urgent action in the face of increasing changes to our global climate in his recent encyclical "Laudato Si [Praised Be]: On the Care of Our Common Home". The effects of changing weather patterns are all around us and sadly, our brothers and sisters who live in poverty are impacted the most.
