Care for Creation Around the World

Emily Mentock

Confronting the deeper realities of our current social and environmental problems, we respond with principles of Catholic teaching — including seeking the common good, defending the most vulnerable, and fraternity with all.

Influenced by Laudato Si’, Emily Mentock reconnected to her Catholic faith and began to promote it through digital communications roles. Most notably, she helped to launch Grotto Network and co-founded Real + True, inspired by the catechism of the Catholic Church.

A Delicate Balance

Sr. Maryann Agnes Mueller, CSSF

This past summer, we all watched as people from our own country and around the world were displaced by fire, floods, drought, and extreme heat. How do we understand and respond to the delicate balance of creation?

Sr. Maryann Agnes serves as the Justice and Peace coordinator for the Felician Sisters of North America. She works with the Franciscan Action Network in Washington, D.C., and serves on the board of the United States Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking.

Actionable Environmental

Lawrence Halushka

Are we bravely facing hard truths or just caught up in fashionable posturing? We will delve into church history to find some answers.

Lawrence Halushka, a coach to executives, law enforcement and youth, will share his life experiences which include a pilgrimage to Medjugorje and 3 near-death experiences.
