Catholic Social Teaching – The Church’s Vision of a Just Society

Social Justice—What is it, when did “it” begin and why is it so important today? Join Sisters Joan Jurski, Nora Klewicki, and Eileen Ripsin on Saturday, Sept. 30 in the Regina Conference Room,6832 Convent Blvd., from 10 am to noon for a conversation around this topic.
The concept of justice within human society has its roots in the Hebrew scriptures. Over the centuries the importance of a just society has taken root in many religious traditions and has expanded beyond concern for the just treatment of all humanity to the just treatment of our sister Mother earth. Pope Francis has made a clear connection between justice and care for the earth in his encyclical “Laudato Si.” This encyclical is rightly added to the body of the Church’s social teaching.
Pope Francis links all human beings to creation, “We are part of nature, included in it, and thus in constant interaction with it.” Learn more and get the answers to these questions… Bring your questions and join the conversation. RSVP to Sister Nora Klewicki 419-824-3528.
