Jim Ennis will be the featured speaker on April 11, 2015 at St. Mary Church, 828 S. 18th Street, Centerville, Iowa 52544. The event is part of the Justice and Peace Speaker Series in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, and the 50th anniversary of its Kansas City Province. The event will begin at 9 am and conclude at 3 pm. Lunch is included in this free event, and reservations are requested.
The Catholic Church’s theology of creation and stewardship is not some new fad or green trend—it’s a calling from God that’s been consistently recognized throughout time and
throughout the teachings of the Catholic Church. Ennis’ talk will explore the relationship between faith and ecology, and make the connection between care for creation and another God-given commission: solidarity with the poor.
