Care for Our Common Home

Save the date! On February 21, Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington, OFS will be presenting Laudato Si: Human Rights Guidelines for Environmental and Climate Justice at Dominican University:


Laudato Si, the Pope’s encyclical on the environment not only addresses humanity’s impact on sentient and non-sentient beings it specifically deals with our use of technology and science on the existence of other humans and the human ecosystem. This presentation will elucidate how Care for Our Common Home leads us away from naive and harmful philosophies of better living through technology and science. It will discuss how the encyclical poignantly instructs us with a deeper, broader and ethical model of protecting human rights and the integrity of the human body from conception to death with a responsible use of postmodern technology and science.

The lecture will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Priory Auditorium at Dominican University; tickets are $10. You can download a flyer for this event by clicking here. In addition, Sylvia will offer a Green Healing Touch clinic from 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m:

Participants will experience Healing Touch, a Green/ Judeo-Christian spiritual healing technique, and learn how to use it to remediate environmental and climate health problems. Complimentary sessions are being provided by the newly formed 501 (c) 3 Franciscan charity Healing Touch of Tau.
