Then please come along to our joint study course on Pope Francis’s encyclical on integral ecology, “Laudato Si”, run jointly with Holy Rosary Catholic and St Margaret’s Uniting Churches.
“Laudato Si” is one of the most significant and intellectually compelling studies of our current climate crisis, and has been widely acclaimed by Christian and secular commentators alike.
