Let Justice Flow Anew: Rivers & People Living in Harmony Virtual Event
Join the Marianist Family members in the Season of Creation to pray, reflect, and learn about the gift of rivers, their life-sustaining generosity, how we have mistreated them, and our call to cherish and protect them. Through brief presentations, we will explore the ecology, pollution impacts, and rights of rivers. We’ll hear stories of immigrants at the Rio-Grande and enter into the suffering at the river borders. We’ll celebrate stories of hope and conservation from the University of Dayton Rivers Institute, St. Mary’s University partners in restoring the San Antonio River, and St. Louis School/Chaminade Univerisity of Honolulu stream cleanup in Honolulu. We’ll dialogue in break-out rooms about steps we can take as individuals and collectively to cultivate gratitude, loving care, and advocacy for rivers and watersheds so that their ecosystem services can be shared with all creatures and generations.
All are welcome!
