Sister Margaret Mayce, OP, the NGO (non-governmental organization) representative for the Dominican Leadership Conference at the UN, is the featured speaker at the monthly presentation sponsored by the Dominican Ecclesial Institute (D+E+I) in Albuquerque on Sunday, October 25, 1:00 -3:00 PM, UNM Continuing Education Building, 1634 University Blvd. NE (map).
The topic of Sister Margaret's address is "Sustaining God’s Creation," continuing with the D+E+I's reflections on Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment Laudato Si.
Sister Margaret's work with worldwide governmental representatives on environmental issues will give a broad dimension to the crisis the Pope addresses in his encyclical.
Sister Margaret has also worked on other issues at the UN, including women's rights. Here is a piece that she wrote in February of this year.
