St. Stanislaus Parish in Lansdale will host a presentation on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’.
The free talk, which is part of the parish’s “Growing in Faith Together” (GIFT) program, will take place on Tuesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. in the parish center’s lobby meeting room. No registration is required.
John Humphreys, a Catholic scientist and conservationist, will survey the encyclical, which is a thoughtful essay on the environmental problems facing our planet, and will then discuss its significance to mankind as a whole. More than a response to climate changes, the encyclical covers all the threats to “our common home,” based on Catholic social teaching. In so doing, it points to avoiding the idol of excessive consumerism and taking care of the least of God’s children

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.
