This summer, Pope Francis will publish his encyclical on human ecology. To help us prepare for the Holy Father’s teachings, we are running a six-week course exploring the relationship between faith and the natural world.
Starting on Friday 17 April, 9:30-11:30am in OLEM Parish Hall, Cambridge.
This short course, written by a popular Catholic environmental commentator Ellen Teague, will guide us through environmental issues, global poverty and unsustainable development. It gives us an opportunity to reflect on our lifestyle – individually and as a parish – and explore positive suggestions for change. We will also be drawing on CAFOD’s experience helping people around the world who can see the effects of climate change within their own lifetime and our actions, campaigning for change.
- People and planet – Friday 17 April
- Food and drink – Friday 24 April
- Battling the elements – Friday 1 May
- Energy for the future – Friday 8 May
- Abundant Life – Friday 15 May
- Covenant with Creation – Friday 22 May
You are welcome to attend any of these sessions, or join us for the whole course.
We will begin each session by making bread together, and while it proves-bakes we’ll engage in theological reflection. And when the bread cools, we’ll break bread together. Theology for the hands and heart!
