EcoJustice: It’s Not Easy Being Green with Catherine Wright, Ph.D.

May 4
There is an urgent need to be green today – not a superficial green that only means caring for the environment when it is convenient. What is needed is an embrace of a deep, dark green like how St Hildegard described Christ: the greening freshness of life. Becoming this type of green Christian is a hard and even persecuted path. But it is also the prophetic vocation of young people today to discover how everything in our universe is a "caress of God" and build communities of mercy and love that tirelessly work to address the cries of the poor and Earth. Join with fellow ecojustice enthusiasts in this workshop to pray, build community, and learn what it means to act justly and walk humbly with God in our world today.
 
Catherine Wright, Ph.D, received her doctorate from Regis College (Toronto School of Theology), a Jesuit college. Her areas of specialization include eco-theology, contemporary Christian ethics, eco-spirituality and human suffering. She also taught graduate level courses for Catholic teachers in moral theology, sacraments and prayer, and eco-spirituality. Currently, she is a member of the Religion and Philosophy Department at Wingate University
