Pope Francis has launched his long awaited Encyclical Laudato Si! (Praised Be! On the Care of our Common Home) and one of our Convocation Keynote Speakers, Dr. Carolyn Woo, President of CRS, was with the Pope in Rome speaking at the launch.

 

Come and join us at the 7th Annual Justice Convocation to hear Dr. Woo as well as Father J. Bryan Hehir - on the vitally important topic of Gospel Justice for our Refugees and Immigrants.

 

We are also introducing a NEW FORMAT this year -focusing on small faith-sharing groups to delve deeper into the Gospel Justice issues addressed by our Keynote Speakers - and to discern action plans to take back to our local parishes following the Convocation.

 

This year's theme is "Care of our Common Home - Welcoming Immigrants/Refugees and promoting Environmental Stewardship"   Our objective is to explore ways that local parishes can address these global challenges. Details about the Program and Speakers can be found at: Visit the website!
