Event description

Description

A Day of Reflection on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Cliff Cockerham, Lay Cistercians of Gethsemani Abbey; Founder, TN Chapter of the Global Catholic Climate Movement
  • Steve Coleman, Volunteer Leader, Catholic Action Team, Citizens' Climate Lobby
  • Rhett Engelking, OFS; Justice & Peace office of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men
  • Luke Henkels, Volunteer Leader, Laudato Si' Generation – U.S.A.
  • Kelly Moltzen, OFS; Convener, Interfaith Public Health Network

Come to our one-day retreat to reflect upon the ground breaking encyclical: "Laudato Si’, Care for Our Common Home," which weaves together the threads of faith, justice, and the environment. Five experts will share their reflections on the integral ecology teaching of Pope Francis as they lead participants through spiritual exercises, prayer, meditation, contemplation, lectio divina, the consciousness examen, etc. as a means of internalizing the Song of Creation, the Cry of the Earth, the Cry of the Poor, and the Call to Integral Ecology.

The format will be highly interactive, alternating periods of silence with both individual experiences and shared discussion. Against the backdrop of the Pentecost Season, participants will be asked to reflect on Gifts of the Spirit nurturing interiorization of Integral Ecology. Except where unwise for reasons of health, participants are encouraged to spend the day fasting as well.

The cost of the retreat is $85 per person. However, thanks to a generous grant from the Catholic Climate Covenant, scholarships are readily available.
