A healthy earth for a flourishing society: Implementing Laudato Si

As part of the national Catholic social services conference, Hearing Healing Hope, 21 – 23 February 2018, at the Catholic Leadership Centre, East Melbourne, we have developed a comprehensive program that can be attended in whole, or in parts .

We commence on Wednesday evening with a 2.5 hour session titled 'A healthy earth for a flourishing society: Implementing Laudato Si', which focuses on Pope Francis’ call to ecological conversion. In this highly interactive session, we’ll explore our interconnectedness with nature and the earth and the society living in it; the intimate relationship between the fragility of the planet and its impact on the poor, focusing on utility prices; and how the Catholic Social Services sector can be strengthened in its work of walking with and assisting people in hope, justice and love.

The session will be facilited by Jacqui Remond, former director of Catholic Earthcare Australia, and includes a smoking ceremony led by Sherry Balcombe of Aboriginal Catholic Ministry Victoria; and contributions from Dr Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann, Aboriginal Elder from Nauiyu (Daly River) in the Northern Territory; Gavin Dufty of St Vincent de Paul Society and Bronwyn Lay of Jesuit Social Services.

If you care about the natural world and human flourishing, this session is for you! Tickets for the Wednesday evening session only are $50 each.

Online bookings have now closed. Email Lucia Brick if you have any enquiries.

We look forward to seeing you there!
