In the inaugural Faith Is A Verb series, we will welcome Anthony Giancatarino to campus for a conversation about the intersection of ecological education, racial justice and spirituality. Anthony directs the Food Equity and Energy Democracy programs at the Center for Social Inclusion in NYC and will be speaking with us about both his work at CSI and how it has been shaped by his own Catholic identity. Our Faith Is A Verb series seek out creative people who are living witnesses to the gospel, working for justice in our modern world. Pope Francis’ most recent encyclical, Laudato Si: On Care for our Common Home, calls for a diversity of innovative responses to climate change and poverty. And so, we will begin this academic year with the spirit of Laudato Si, guiding us. Not everyone is called to engage directly in political life, for this reason, we must broaden our scope and discover how our own unique gifts and strengths can help us us enact change in this world, our Common Home. Join us for lunch and a great conversation.
