With Mary Evelyn Tucker

Thomas Berry was one of the great luminaries of the 20th and early 21st centuries on the relationship between religion and the environment.  His work continues to influence Catholic theology on environmental issues and interfaith dialogue on ecology and justice. Fr. Berry’s legacy is an essential component of the Passionist community’s commitment to care for our common home, as articulated in Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’. This program with Mary Evelyn Tucker will include time for reflection, discussion, and a delicious, sustainability-minded dinner sourced from local producers, along with the option to join our worshipping community for Mass at 7:00 p.m.
