Laudato Si': On the Care of our Common Home

Pope Francis' letter to humanity, Laudato Si: On the Care of Our Common Home, has caught the attention of Christians and non Christians alike.  Francis understands that transforming our relationship with creation, and in particular with our planet, Earth, must now be the top priority of all people.

In the encyclical Francis says,  Sister Earth "cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her."

This encyclical is written in an engaging, accessible style.  It is great for individual reading but even better for a discussion group.  Reading and discussing the encyclical in a group is exactly what is called for because throughout the letter, there are calls to dialogue.

Laudato Si

Our kick-off event on June 15 was a wonderful evening!  Professor Stephen Scharper’s presentation was solid and energizing, inspiring us all to explore more deeply what Pope Francis is saying in Laudato Si: On the Care of Our Common Home

There will be two groups reading and discussing the encyclical. 

  • An evening group, led by Pam Thomson and Tony Crosbie, will meet in the Avenue Road and St. Clair area on six Tuesdays in July and August.
  • A daytime group, facilitated by Paul Pynkoski, will meet at the church, days and times TBD.

It is still possible to join a group!  If you would like to do that, please register online or by calling the church office at 416-922-4948.  One of the organizers of your preferred group will contact you with further details.
