The recently published book by former parishioner Anthony M. Annett, subtitled, "How Catholic Tradition Can Create a More Just Economy," was the topic at the August 2022 Cathedral Book Club meeting. Another former parishioner, Michael Sean Winters, in an February 2022 review in National Catholic Reporter, argues that "Cathonomics" "should be required reading for anyone who is serious about bringing their faith to bear on decisions relating to public life." In agreement, Christine Legarde, president, European Central Bank, states "This book should be read widely."

Monthly Meetings

Join us on the third Thursday of every month to discuss projects and help plan activities that promote the Laudato Si' mission within our parish and beyond. Email the Co-chairs Simone Seym and Phil Downey for more information. 

Our Mission

To encourage a deeper awareness of our duties to God’s creation and to take action at the individual, state, national and global level with a focus on prayer, ecological conversion, energy efficiency, conservation, and advocacy efforts.

From Pope Francis

"Dear friends, time is running out! Deliberations must go beyond mere exploration of what can be done, and concentrate on what needs to be done, starting today. We do not have the luxury of waiting for others to step forward, or of prioritizing short-term economic benefits. The climate crisis requires 'our decisive action, here and now' (Laudato Si’, 161) and the Church is fully committed to playing her part."
