Mary, Queen of Creation: Praying a Green Rosary (on-site)

October 3, 2024 | Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. (CDT)

facilitated by S. Elizabeth Carrillo

Cost: $75

Explore the Church’s understanding of Mary as Mother and Queen of Creation in light of Church tradition and Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’. Experience how the mysteries of the rosary can help us enter into a healing relationship with the earth and grow in our calling to be loving, faithful stewards of God’s creation. Through the example and intercession of Mary we seek to “look at this world with eyes of wisdom”(Laudato Si’ 241) and care for the whole of creation redeemed and restored by her son, Jesus Christ.
