St. Raphaela's Chapel

Mary Evelyn Tucker will give a presentation on "The Ecological Spirituality of Teilhard de Chardin" on Saturday, June 15, 2pm, in St. Raphaela's chapel in Haverford, PA. This talk is sponsored by The Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus and is free and open to the public.
Mary Evelyn will share how Teilhard's sense of the earth and its evolution was a source of inspiration in both his scientific work and his theological reflections. Meditating on the nature and formation of the universe was a primary source of revelation for him and where he so deeply encountered the divine.
Today, we are in the midst of the growing extinction of species and the devastation of ecosystems, and we are in need of a large-scale cosmological framework to understand and interpret our loss. Mary Evelyn will show how Teilhard's comprehensive vision of the earth and its interconnected life processes evolving over time can be a well spring of hope for the critical work ahead to create a sustainable future.
