Loyola University Chicago’s Public Interest Law Society, The Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage, and the Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago will co-host “Pope Francis’s Moral Message: Care for the Environment, Care for the Poor.” Loyola Chancellor Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., will headline the event and speak to attendees at the School of Law about Pope Francis’s recent environmental encyclical, Laudato Si’, in which the Pope calls for an inclusive dialogue about how we can work together to shape the future of our planet.
The address will be followed by a panel discussion, which will expand upon Father Garanzini’s remarks on environmental affairs, economics, and the family, and how these dimensions are addressed in law. Panelists include:
