Laudato Si’ and Chaplaincy: How are We Connected to the Ecological Crisis?
Presented by Anna Johnson
November 17, 2022 ~ 12pm – 1:30pm Central Time
As the ecological crisis is increasingly impacting both the mental and physical health and well-being of the communities and individuals we serve, we are called to take a step back to look at the overall picture and discern what role we can play in responding. Join us to learn about how the ecological crisis will increasingly affect the communities we work with, and how our Catholic faith, through the encyclical Laudato Si and the teachings of Christ, calls us to act and be beacons of hope.
As a result of this webinar, participants will:
- Discuss the ecological crisis
- Apply the teachings of Laudato Si to their chaplaincy ministry
- Examine their chaplaincy ministry in light of the Laudato Si Action Platform
