ADMISSION: Donations appreciated
Balally Parish, with BEG (Balally Environment Group) and the Parish Pastoral Centre are hosting a conference on “Our Common Home” (Encyclical “Laudato Si”) on Friday the 18th of September and Saturday 19th of September. You cannot miss the questions that will be asked and answered: – Is there really any scientific evidence for climate change?
– Why do people say that ecology is good economics?
– Can the Bible, theology or the Church say anything relevant about climate and ecology?
– Why did Pope Francis think that this was such an important issue that he wrote to all Christians, indeed all women and men about it?
You won’t want to miss the musical lament for the pain and beauty of the Earth, or the poetry recitals or the question and answer sessions.
This will be a great and challenging way to spend a Friday night and a Saturday morning.
So … into the diary …18th and 19th of September.
