Teilhard petition:

Recently a group of scientists, who are interested in promoting Teilhard’s thought and spirituality, have prepared a petition to Pope Francis asking that he consider declaring Teilhard a Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. We invite you to consider signing the petition. You can find the petition and more information about this by clicking here!

Follow us on Facebook Facebook and Twitter Twitter. There, we will post updates and messages in case of event cancellation due to weather.
