Active Hope: Earth Day and Every Day

Please join us for an afternoon retreat sponsored by St. Ignatius parish and the Archdiocesan Office of Life, Justice and Peace on Sunday, April 17th from 12-3 pm at the Loyola Jesuit Center (3220 SE 43rd Avenue, Portland 97206).

The challenges we face in today’s world can be difficult even to think about—climate change, mass extinction, social and political upheaval.  Active Hope shows us how to strengthen our mutual capacity to face this crisis so we can respond with resilience and creative power.

The afternoon will be led by Pam Wood—a counselor and facilitator who works with faith communities to deepen their connection with the Earth through experiential and interactive processes, reflection, Catholic Social Teaching, ritual, art and music. She is the co-author of “Care for Creation:  A Franciscan Spirituality of Earth” (St. Anthony Messenger Press, 2008).

Childcare and luncheon finger foods will be provided. In order to aid the retreat organizers, please complete the form below and submit your RSVP by Wednesday, April 14th.
