Join us for The Letter:  A Message for Our Earth


Laudato Si'Pope Francis' encyclical on climate change, offers a transformative new vision of environmental protection. Laudato Si', in partnership with Off the Fence Productions, has released The Letter, a film which shares the core messages of Laudato Si' in a compelling and beautiful way by sharing the stories of four people whose voice is not being heard - the voice of the Indigenous, the voice of the young, the voice of the poor, and the voice of nature.  Join us for a viewing of the film and a discussion led by Sr. Sheila Marie Fitzpatrick, OSB.
