October 15, 2015 "Are We At Home
in the Cosmos? Creation as Gift and Challenge"
Presented by Sister Ilia Delio,
Pigott Auditorium, 7 PM
Please join us for
this inaugural “St. Francis of Assisi Annual Lecture” for the Center for
Environmental Justice and Sustainability. It is also the first 2015-2016
Catholic Heritage Lecture for Seattle University's ICTC . The lecture and
related events will focus on the First Principle and Foundation of the
Spiritual Exercises, that is, creation as the expression of God’s love. Delio
and panelists will call us to share in a sense of gratitude which will ground
us when confronting the realities of ecological injustice.
Ilia Delio, OSF, is a Franciscan Sister of Washington D.C. and
Director of Catholic Studies at Georgetown University. With doctorates in
pharmacology and historical theology, Delio offers a unique perspective on the
interconnections between science and religion, particularly in light of current
conversations on climate change and environmental justice.
