On Saturday, April 21 the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Ill., will present Our Sacred Earth, Our Common Home: Reflection and Action on Laudato Si’. The keynote address will be given by Mary Evelyn Tucker, Ph.D. Senior Lecturer and Research Scholar, School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale Divinity School. This event is the second in a series devoted to the study and implementation of Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical on ecology, Laudato Si’. Dr. Tucker collaborated for many years with eco-theologian and Earth scholar Fr. Thomas Berry. After the keynote address the participants will take part in a series of “hands-on” break-out sessions. The morning will conclude with a feedback and takeaway session. This event is intended for individuals and parish groups looking for practical ways to care for our common home, our sacred Earth.
