RESOURCES FOR THE FEAST OF ST. FRANCIS 2014*
From St. Francis, to Pope Francis,
Creating a Climate for Solidarity
*Or on another date if this date is not possible.
2014 marks the 35th anniversary of St. Francis named as the Patron Saint of those who promote ecology, by St. John Paul II. Pope Francis, equally inspired by St. Francis, highlighted early in his pontificate how the poor are disproportionately and unjustly harmed by environmental degradation, including climate change.
From St. Francis to Pope Francis to You! Creating a Climate for Solidarity is a 90 minute multimedia presentation combining short video testimonials with group reflection processes that highlight the impacts of climate change on the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people and communities. Each program will be offered in Parish, College, and Youth versions and in both English and Spanish. All materials** will be FREE of charge!
From St. Francis to Pope Francis to You! will be a theme carried through to two additional programs and that reflect the ministry of both St. Francis and Pope Francis:
• From St. Francis to Pope Francis to You! A Climate for Creation: available for Earth Day 2015
• From St. Francis to Pope Francis to You! A Climate for Peace: available for the Feast of St. Francis 2015.
BEGIN PLANNING NOW for your parish, school, campus ministry or other group to participate in this nationwide effort.

**Discussion Guide and Resource Materials will be posted here by Sept. 1
