Conferences: “Laudato Si’ and the Catholic Church in the United States: A Lecture Series on our common home”

July 6, 2021

Creighton University along with Catholic Climate Covenant will provide a series of Common Home lectures that seek to empower and inspire Catholics to learn more deeply about the encyclical Laudato Si’ and its teaching on climate change in the U.S. Church.

From July 13-15, the event, “Laudato Si’ and the U.S. Catholic Church: A Lecture Series on Our Common Home,” will feature the Global Catholic Climate Movement, among other institutions such as the International Association of Jesuit Universities and the National Catholic Education Association.

The inaugural lecture will be given by His Eminence, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago, and Maureen Day, Assistant Professor of Religion and Society at the Franciscan School of Theology.  

The Laudato Si’ Action Platform recently launched by the Vatican at the end of Laudato Si’ Week will be presented. In addition, various topics such as environmental justice, communication and media, creation care teams, preaching and teaching Laudato Si’ in educational institutions and parishes will be addressed. 

The presentations will be followed by a discussion with conference participants. The closing address will be given by Sister Ilia Delio, OSF, PhD, Josephine C. Connelly Endowed, Professor of Theology at Villanova University.
