Lecturer: Michael Ross, Ph.D. (cand.)
Thursday, April 21 at 7:30 pm at the Joanne & Peter Kenny Theatre, King's University College
There is a common misconception that Pope Francis’ ecological emphasis is an entirely new development in the Catholic tradition. This presentation will attempt to show otherwise, exploring the sources of the encyclical’s ecological themes, past Church statements on environmental issues, and the ecotheology and eco-justice movements that have been developing for the last few decades.
Michael Ross, a King's alumni, andPh.D. candidate at The University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto and a member of the Elliot Allen Institute for Theology and Ecology.
Lecture co-sponsored by the Institute for Ongoing Formation at St. Peter's Seminary, and King's University College. Free and open to the public.
