 Pope Francis is a man on a mission. Like his namesake St Francis of Assisi, he has made the poor, the environment and the proclamation of the gospel his mission. The encyclical Laudato Si’ is a part of his ‘mission strategy’, addressed to every human being on the planet and calling for their conversion in relation to the ecology of Creation. ‘Many things have to change course,’ he writes, ‘but it is we human beings above all who need to change’ (§202). Join us for this six-week course of reading and discussion and let Laudato Si’ challenge you too.
