Cabrini College will host the conference “Faith, Climate and Health: Creation Care for a Greener Future” on Friday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Radnor college’s Grace Hall.
Cabrini professor John Francis Burke and the Shalom Center’s Rabbi Arthur Waskow will explore Catholic and Jewish perspectives on the natural environment in their respective talks.
Additional breakout sessions include talks by Cabrini professor Carrie Nielsen, Chuck Marshall of Central Baptist Church in Wayne, Rev. Mitch Hescox of the Evangelical Environmental Network, and a session with Rabbi Waskow.
The conference will help participants examine the perils of climate change and how society can address them by seeing the spiritual call to care for God’s creation, to judge the scientific evidence about the threats posed by climate change and to enact practical initiatives to arrest climate change and bring about a greener world.
Admission is free and lunch will be provided. More information and registration (requested) is available at cabrini.edu/climate.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
