Franciscan Spirituality of the Earth

Location: Liem Azar Cathedral Center

Leaders: The Reverend Dr. Phillip Bennett The Venerable Dr. Pamela Nesbit

Earth with all its creatures is in crisis. We can no longer see ourselves as separate from the “Great Chain of Being” and we can no longer see this as a non-religious issue. St. Francis of Assisi intuited this 800 years ago. In these two Sundays, we will explore the life and spirituality of St. Francis and how he speaks to us in our current ecological crisis.
