In light of the environmental crisis our world is facing, Pope Francis has called each of us to listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. This Lent, join us for a series of reflective evenings with inspiring speakers, prayer and discussion, using the film-based resource “Global Healing”. These engaging documentaries will inform and challenge people to respond to Pope Francis’ call to Care for Our Common Home. Suitable for all who are concerned about what is happening to our world and who want to take action.
