On September 24, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. central time, Pope Francis is scheduled to become the first pope to address a joint meeting of Congress. Following on the heels of Laudato Si, the pope's encyclical on ecology issued in June, this much-anticipated visit offers the opportunity for people to come together in community and explore how we can better care for God's creation and our neighbors.
On the evening of September 24, the day of the Pope’s Congressional address, Fort Worth Interfaith Power & Light invites you to a “Pope and Potluck” to reflect, discuss, and share good food. Mary Jo Kaska, PhD, Biblical Scholar, and Rita Cotterly, PhD, retired, will offer Catholic perspectives in response to the Pope’s address to Congress. People of all faiths are welcome to attend!
When: September 24, 6:00 PM
Where: University Christian Church of Fort Worth, room 207
To ensure that we have adequate space, please RSVP to Sandra by September 23, 2015.
“We have forgotten that we ourselves are the dust of the earth; our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.” – Pope Francis, Laudato Si’
