The three communities on the Convent Station Campus, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, the Academy of Saint Elizabeth, and the College of Saint Elizabeth celebrated Earth Week 2017 together by attending a “Lunch and Learn” at the College. The presenter was Dr. Anna J. Brown, Associate Professor and Chair of Political Science Department, St. Peter’s University, Jersey City. Dr. Brown is a long time activist for peace and justice and the program coordinator for King-Kairos Social Justice House.Dr. Brown’s presentation was entitled, "The Fierce Urgency of the Now: Let Us Love Sister Earth, Create Community, and Act in these Dark Days of Climate Change.” Using insights from climate science, poetry, and Laudato Si’ of Pope Francis, Dr. Brown inspired us to practice resurrection and to be “Easter people in a Good Friday world.” Our joint celebration of Earth Week will continue with a prayer service on Tuesday, April 25 in Holy Family Chapel.
