    "I am climate change, I am the cause, I am the solution"

    Thursday, October 15, 4-5:15 p.m., St. Clare Room, Library and Learning Commons

    In Laudato Si’, citing both science and theology, Pope Francis establishes the climate crisis as real, urgent, moral, and spiritual. He links the cry of the earth to the cry of the poor and casts these as expressions of the same underlying dynamic. In this lecture, Dr. Woo will consider the pope’s call for a conversion of heart to cherish the earth as God's creation and honor the dignity of people above profits, technology, and globalization.

    Sacrament of Reconciliation

    Mondays, 11:30 a.m.-12 p.m. and Sundays, 8-8:45 p.m., Mission Church

    These scheduled opportunities for individual confession with a priest are available when classes are in session. The reconciliation room is located on the right side of the Mission Church, next to the organ.
