Jesuit Father Thomas Reese developed A Reader's Guide to Laudato Si' that speaks to our Franciscan charism and may assist your Fraternity in honouring our commitment to "respecting our common home". The guide goes through Pope Francis' encyclical, chapter by chapter with a short commentary on each chapter followed by a selection of discussion questions. For those of you who have not already made a study of the encyclical, Laudato Si', this would be an excellent way of taking each month one chapter to include in your On-going Formation study. - Sherrill Guimond. ofs, Regional Formation Director
As your Regional Formation Director, I hope to provide fraternities with formation ideas and material that will be useful in your local formation programs. My hope is that you will share your ideas as well so we can all benefit. Just click on the Comments Button.
