Laudato Si' Week!
- May 18-24 has been designated as Laudato Si' Week by Catholics the world over, in commemoration of the promulgation of Pope Francis' encyclical on Care for Creation. In honor of Laudato Si' Week, our sister Franciscan parish, St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Triangle, Virginia, has created a virtual Eco-Summit open to all who may be interested.
- Closer to home, our sister Franciscan parish in Raleigh, St. Francis of Assisi, is also offering a webinar in honor of Laudato Si' Week. In collaboration with Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle, Trevor Thompson will present "The Cry of the Earth, The Cry of the People, - A Conversation about Pope Francis' Laudato Si' In the Context of COVID-19, May 21, 7-8:30 pm. Pope Francis’ landmark teaching document Laudato si’ challenges us to address climate change, deepen our shared responsibility for our common home, and live into a new spirituality in this technocratic age. This year, on its 5th Anniversary, Pope Francis challenges us to consider the Covid-19 Pandemic as we observe “Laudato si’ Week” May 18-24, 2020. Click this link to register.
- Meals for the Hungry. On the 3rd Saturday of every month, ICC volunteers provide meals for the hungry in Durham at Urban Ministries. To keep everyone safe, and following the current restrictions of the City of Durham, we are asking volunteers to bring their food donation directly to Urban Ministries of Durham, 410 Liberty St, Durham, NC 27701, between 3 and 4 pm. UMD will then portion the food for distribution. You can sign up here. Contact: Becky Swoager
