March 18, 2019, Adrian, Michigan – As the penitential season of Lent begins, Sister Patricia Benson, OP, draws on Laudato Si’, the environmental encyclical of Pope Francis, as a guide through her exploration of Lent. Her workshop, “Laudato Si’– A Lenten Challenge,” is from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
Laudato Si’ challenges us to consider the needs of the marginalized people who are poor along with the needs of Earth’s ecosystems and creatures. The encyclical also calls us to confront our consumerist lifestyles and move toward ecological conversion.
A former theology professor at Ecological Theological Seminary in Detroit, Sister Patricia is a dedicated voice and advocate for Earth and her creatures.
