Responding to Climate Change as People of Hope: Pope Francis’s Call to Action

About 60 people gathered at St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Reston, Virginia, to hear a presentation from Lonnie Ellis, Associate Director of the Catholic Climate Covenant, on Pope Francis’s encyclical on the environment (“Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home”) and on his visit to the U.S. last week.

Through the presentation, small group discussion, a question and answer period, and written materials, participants learned how and why the Church is drawing attention to the moral dimensions of climate change, and how to take action to care for our common home as people of hope. Work on the issue will continue through a new parish Care for God’s Creation Ministry.
