On Care for Our Common Home
Please join us for a monthly Monday evening study of Pope Francis’ Encyclical:
“[I]t is no longer enough to speak only of the integrity of ecosystems. We have to dare to speak of the integrity of human life, of the need to promote and unify all the great values. Once we lose our humility, and become enthralled with the possibility of limitless master over everything, we inevitably end up harming society and the environment.” (excerpt)
We will begin each session with a simple soup supper. Each month will focus on one chapter
of the Encyclical and the study guide reflection and discussion questions contained
in this particular edition.
Co-led by: Sue Wilhelm, director, Victory Noll Center
Dr. Doug Meador and Dr. Earl Kumfer, University of Saint Francis
Dr. Meador is an associate professor of economics and will co-facilitate
the first three sessions.
Dr. Kumfer is a professor for the Department of Philosophy and Theology and will
co-facilitate the last three sessions.
