About the Theme: We are creatures of God, stewards of God’s creation. In this retreat, we will explore environmental theology reflected in hymns and spiritual songs, biblical texts, and the recent encyclical by Pope Francis I. All nature sings, and we sing with it!
Through singing and learning together, we will recognize our need to tune in not only to nature’s praise of God’s creation, but also to its laments over the ways that creation is threatened by human abuses.
