The Thomas Berry Forum for Ecological Dialogue is grateful to participate in the 2011 Week of the Peacemaker events at Iona by sponsoring an evening with Doug Demeo.

For six years, Doug has served as coordinator of retreats in campus ministry at St. Peter’s College, and retains and growing interest in the “greening” of Jesuit College and Universities.
