Event description

Description

As a part of the 2018 Saint Louis Climate Summit, Cardinal Turkson will give a free lecture at St Francis Xavier Church from 2:30pm - 3:30pm.

The theme for the Sunday lecture is “The Gospel of Creation ,” which is also the title of chapter two of Pope Francis’ encyclical letter, Laudato Si’, on care for our common home, in which he refers to the conviction of believers and the rich contribution that religion can make towards an integral ecology and the full development of humanity.

Cardinal Turkson played an instrumental role in the formulation of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’, the landmark document that reflects upon humankind’s moral obligation to address the issue of climate change. He was elevated to the cardinalate by Pope John Paul II in 2003, and is widely regarded as a likely candidate for election to the papacy.

The 2018 Saint Louis Climate Summit brings together some of the most authoritative minds in climate science, ecology, sustainable development, and related disciplines for three days of discussion on climate change. It will highlight key issues, celebrate notable achievements, and elucidate a path forward. The Climate Summit is a featured activity of Saint Louis University’s Bicentennial Celebration.

Complimentary parking is available at the Canisius Lot,

300 N. Spring Avenue, directly across from

the Chaefitz School of Business
