A Faith Based Challenge to COP26
Fr Seán McDonagh
Father Seán McDonagh, a Columban priest, has a long history of being a eco-activist and in 1985 his book ‘To Care for the Earth’ called for a new theology that would give as much prominence to creation as to redemption. Since then he has written many books and articles that have all contributed to a deeper understanding of what is happening to our ‘common home’ and the need to take radical action. He also contributed to the research which led to ‘Laudato Si’.
This is a wonderful opportunity to come together, as women and men of faith, to discern the action needed at COP26.
Eco-Congregation Scotland is delighted to support this Scottish Catholic Laity Network event with SCIAF, Laudato Si’ Animators and Eco Groups Scotland as part of the Season of Creation 2021.

7.00 – 7.10 Welcome and Opening Prayer
7.10 – 8.30 Presentation by Seán followed by Q&A
8.30 – 9.00 Breakout Rooms based on Catholic Dioceses in Scotland, or England and Wales, or Parish if requested
