Climate Change and the Papal Encyclical "Laudato Si"

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Regis College, University of Toronto, 100 Wellesley Street West, Toronto, near the corner of Queen's Park Crescent East. 

Stephen Scharper's lecture, titled "Let Us Sing as We Go" will speak on Pope Francis, Laudato Si', and the Quest for an Integral Ecology. Pope Francis's melding of poverty and ecological integrity in his encyclical Laudato Si' represents a critical emergence in Catholic social teaching. Yet, given his international pastoral presence and palpable humility, his search for an "integral ecology" represents something deeper and potentially more far-reaching. The larger implications of this quest will be explored in this presentation, including its impact on international political and moral approaches to climate change.

All events are free. All are welcome. Lecture and Symposium take place in St. Joseph Chapel, Regis College. Seating is limited. Please pre-register below.
