The Ecology and Spirituality group will meet the weekend of June 26 – 28, 2015 at St. Gabriel’s Retreat Center, Clarks Summit, PA. The theme will be Climate Change: Our Call to Conversion.
In preparation for the UN climate summit in Paris in December 2015, we hope to honor our responsibility to appreciate and protect our Earth Community. We plan to use a communal process developed by the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center in Seattle, Washington.
If Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment is published in English by that time, we will also use this as motivation and inspiration for our lives.
Our weekend is planned as a workshop format in a prayerful and contemplative setting. Time outside in nature on the beautiful grounds is valued.
Last year, a number of our Grey Nun Associates added new ideas and liveliness to our meeting. As always, this weekend is open to sisters and associates, colleagues, family members and friends – anyone who wants to learn more and commit to care for God’s creation.
