‘Mending Creation’


The Social Action Office of the Diocese of Davenport and the Blessed John XXIII fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order are participating in “Melting Ice, Mending Creation: A Catholic Approach to Climate Change.” The event is Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. at St. Vincent Center, diocesan headquarters.
The program highlights the Pontifical Academy of Science’s Working Group statement, “Fate of Mountain Glaciers in the Anthropocene,” and a viewing of a talk by James Balog, the science photographer behind the documentary “Chasing Ice.”
The program will offer discussion and suggest steps that viewers can take. The Transitus Prayer service commemorating the last hours of St. Francis’ life will follow the presentation.

The Sisters of St. Francis of Clinton also are participating in this program on the Feast of St. Francis, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. at The Canticle in Clinton. For more information, call (563) 242-7611.
