About the event

“The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development.” -- Pope Francis, "Laudato Si’"

“The Letter” is a powerful documentary about how spiritual values call us to take action on the planetary crisis. It focuses on a diverse group of people, particularly youth from around the world, who have an encounter with Pope Francis that gives them hope.  The film brings forth the beauty of the Pope’s encyclical Laudato Si’ that was added to the body of Church’s social teaching.  It is an invitation to each of us to care for God’s creation – nature, the poor, and society as a whole - now more than ever.

The screening will be followed by a 30-minute reflection and talk facilitated by the Metro New York Catholic Climate Movement, part of the Laudato Si’ Movement. Popcorn and other light refreshments will be served, and all will be entered into a raffle for copies of Laudato Si’.  We look forward to seeing you!

For more information, please contact the Parish Center at 212-288-6250 or info@stelmo79.org.

*Secondary students, Grades 6 and up.
