BRING POPE FRANCIS’ RECENT ENCYCLICAL TO LIFE in the Chesapeake Bay watershed with an experiential, interfaith series for young adults (people in their 20s and 30s). Learn about the issues facing our local ecosystem, environmental injustice happening right here, and the role people of faith play in healing the brokenness. 

Young adults (20s and 30s) of any faith are encouraged to join us this fall for an amazing 3-part series designed to strengthen our understanding of Pope Francis' encyclical teachings and how to relate his call to action in our everyday lives. Attendees will gain knowledge about our relationship with water, local threats to clean water, and how to actively respond to the profound ecological and moral challenges of our time.
