Join us on Thursday, June 24, 7:00 PM Eastern Time, for a presentation by Fr. Joe Mitchell entitled “Seeds of Hope for Our Planet: Thomas Berry and the Great Work.”  The presentation will focus on how we can respond to Pope Francis’ call to “Care for Our Common Home.” Inspired by the wisdom of Thomas Berry, known as one of the great religious ecological thinkers of the 20th century, this presentation will explore the Great Work of our time: how to make a transition from a period of human devastation of the Earth to a period when humans would recognize the sacredness of all creation and find their place within the web of life.

Joseph Mitchell, C.P., a Passionist priest, received his training in theology at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and earned a graduate degree in Philosophy, Cosmology and Consciousness from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. He currently serves as president of the Passionist Earth & Spirit Center in Louisville, Kentucky, an organization inspired by Thomas Berry and dedicated to Earth and human flourishing.
