BRANCH OUT: Taking Action for Our Common Home
You are invited to partner with the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael in exploring and living into our Ladauto Si’ Action Platform. Laudato Si’ is the second encyclical of Pope Francis and includes the subtitle “on care for our common home”. In this challenging address to people of goodwill, the Pope critiques consumerism and irresponsible development, laments environmental degradation and global warming, and calls all people of the world to take “swift and unified global action” to counter these effects we did not see coming.
On October 4, 2022, aptly coinciding with the conclusion of the month-long Season of Creation, the Sisters will host a launch presentation (in person and via Zoom) to share their vision and priorities relative to the Laudato Si’ Action Platform, and they are looking for partners who also seek to BRANCH OUT. We shall seek inspiration from each other and our environment. Discover how the olive trees on campus can help us in our response to the Pope’s challenge. Enjoy a casual reception following the presentation and a short walk of the grounds.
