A Faith Based Challenge to COP26

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.

 

Format of evening:

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

Climate Fringe Week

18 – 26 September 2021

During Climate Fringe Week we join with civil society groups across Scotland to celebrate and support all the ways you can engage in climate activism; be that as part of an organisation, with your friends, family or wider community.

With COP26 coming to Glasgow, this is a key time to bring about climate action and the Scottish voice should be louder than ever.
