"Laudato Si' and the U.S. Catholic Church: A Conference Series on Our Common Home" kicked off its 2021 gathering on July 13, 2021 with the Opening Keynote with Cardinal Cupich and Dr. Maureen Day: "A Bold Embrace of Laudato Si’."
"The U.S. Catholic Church has not yet enacted Laudato Si’ commensurate with the climate crisis or the fullness of the Church’s mission. Following welcomes from Dan Misleh, executive director of the Catholic Climate Covenant, and the Rev. Daniel Hendrickson, SJ, PhD, president of Creighton University, His Eminence Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago, and Maureen Day, PhD, assistant professor of religion and society, Franciscan School of Theology at the University of San Diego, discuss the opportunities and challenges to integrating Laudato Si’ more deeply into the U.S. Catholic Church."
