Upcoming Programs

Have you seen The Letter?
Join us for reflection & discussion!

Monday, January 30th
4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
via Zoom

We continue to encourage viewing of The Letter, a documentary produced in collaboration with the Laudato Si Movement that tells the stories of five people, representing themes from Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si: a teenage climate activist from India, an Indigenous leader from Brazil, a young man struggling with poverty and climate change from Senegal, and two wildlife biologists from Hawaii.

As part of Mercy’s participation in Year 2 of the Laudato Si Action Plan, we invite you to view the movie at your leisure and then join us for reflection and discussion. The program will feature special guest Dr. Lorna Gold, who accompanied participants on their trip to the Vatican. Lorna Gold is also Chair of the Laudato Si' Movement which is behind the project.

Co-sponsored by Mercy Ecology, Mercy by the Sea, and the Institute Justice Team.

Journey to the Heart:
Falling in Love with Earth

Presented by Sharon Zayac OP
4:15 - 5:15 p.m.

As we witness the on-going chaos of our planetary home, there arises within us a deeper and more urgent longing for connection, with others, with the greater Earth community.

Some claim we need to turn to an eco-spirituality, one that recognizes our role in that community. More and more of us recognize that, rather than learning eco-spirituality, it is instead allowing it to resurface within us and to reclaim us. Journey to the Heart invites you to do just that.

The Fire we Carry:
God’s Love and the Evolutionary Journey

Presented by Arlene Flaherty OP.
4:15 - 5;15 p.m.

In the Great Flaring Forth over 13.7 billion years ago, the Creator’s love seeded the universe with love. Over 2,000 years ago, a Second Flaring Forth emerged in Jesus of Nazareth. Through his life and work, he illuminated how love, the fire we carry, brings about healing, conversion, new consciousness, and abundant life for all.

How might our loving and living as followers of Jesus, bring about another Flaring Forth? What impact can this have for a vulnerable Earth and her community of life today?
