About the Event

Pope Francis invites us to explore this path in his Encyclical:  ‘Care for Our Common Home’.  He reminds us that Jesus ‘makes all things new’   (Rev. 21:5).  And he encourages us in the meantime to come together and take charge of this home which has been entrusted to us … God does not abandon us.  God does not leave us alone.  God’s love impels us to find new ways forward  (Laudato Si -- #243- 245).   Consider spending an afternoon exploring the meaning of the Advent Season of hope for all of God’s Creation.
