  • St. Francis Xavier School - Xavier Room 808 Linden Ave Wilmette, IL, 60091 United States (map)

Sundays, September 13, 20, and 27 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Xavier Room

Join us at St. Francis Xavier for a discussion on Pope Francis’ encyclical letter, Laudato Si’ - On Care for Our Common Home.

Pope Francis’ letter calls on all humanity to make the world a better place. The Adult Education Committee of St. Francis Xavier Church invites you to three different sessions on consecutive Sundays that will include presentations and discussions of this important letter.

Sunday, September 20: Outline

Addressing criticisms of Laudato Si’: Greg Krohm, economist and parishioner of SFX addresses and dis-cusses controversies and challenging topics for some people in the encyclical. Pope Francis will be addressing a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24 so many issues of the encyclical are timely.

Dialogue: Continued conversation, questions, remarks and reflections regarding the issues presented by Pope Francis.

So….what’s next? Where do we go from here? What are our responsibilities to future generations? How do we manage, implement and be proactive about issues of concern for all humankind and the care of our common home?
