      Fall 2015 THE ALUMNI SEMINAR SERIES

    What Is Happening to Our Common Home?
    The Debate About Pope Francis’s Recent Letter on
    the Environment and the Economy

    When Pope Francis’s letter, Laudato Sí, appeared in June 2015, it caused a stir in newspapers and media around the world. It raised questions about the ecology and the economy in the U. S., Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. What does this have to do with faith? With Catholic social teaching? With our responsibility to creation and to human ecology?
    Join us as we read and discuss this long and eloquent document about the future of our planet. We will both engage the proposals of Pope Francis and participate in the worldwide debate they have caused.
