This is an accessible course – you don’t need any prior knowledge – enabling participants to discuss some of the topics and themes that are influencing Pope Francis as he writes his forthcoming Papal Encyclical – a letter to the Church promoting the Holy Father’s teaching, which we are expecting will be published in the early summer this year.
Through these sessions, we will can share our faith and learn from each other; our discussions are stimulated by questions, facts, actions and papal quotations. We were blessed that joining us today were a former biologist, a social worker and a theologian.
The human race has been able to go beyond our immediate environment, and look back.

And they see the beauty and fragility of a planet we must preserve for future generations.
Chance to catch up:
What do you think about the environment; the people and the planet we live on?
