Tuesday, October 6, 2020
9:00 p.m.

The Jesuit Friends and Alumni of Kansas City invite you to an important conversation:

Caring for Creation in a Changing World: The Convergence of Climate, Race, and COVID with Judith Mayotte, Ph.D.

In his encyclical Laudato si’, Pope Francis calls for a culture that will “hear the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.”

Join us virtually to hear Judy Mayotte share a hopeful message about how each of us as engaged, responsible, and responsive global citizens can reflect on and care for creation so that we can help maintain the fragile balance of life on earth.

Judy Mayotte has been an advocate for refugees as Chair of the Women’s Refugee Commission and as a board member of Refugees International. She is an Emmy Award winner and a MacArthur Foundation grant recipient.

A Wichita native and a member of the founding faculty of Kansas City’s Bishop O’Hara High School, Judy holds a doctorate in Theology from Marquette University and received an honorary degree as Marquette’s commencement speaker in 2016.

All alumni, parents, and friends of Jesuit education and spirituality are invited and welcome to attend.
