FREE Registration for the MLSM Canada National Gathering
This Season of Creation Mouvement Laudato Si' Movement - Canada (MLSM Canada) is responding to Pope Francis’ call to “come together”! We are inviting all MLSM Canada members and supporters as well as Laudato Si’ Animators and other global Laudato Si’ Movement (LSM) members across Canada to our first online MLSM Canada National Gathering on Wednesday, September 27th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm ET.
We too believe that “much can be done” (Laudato Si’ #180) if we build better bridges and a stronger movement of Catholics and all people of good will across Canada seeking to bring Laudato Si’ to life and working towards a more just and sustainable earth community. We hope you will join us!
At the MLSM Canada National Gathering we aim to provide space to:
- share on action and advocacy opportunities and invite collaboration;
- invite building community and finding support regionally and across Canada;
- facilitate sharing of resources, successes, challenges and strategies.
Both Agnes Richard, MLSM Canada Coordinator, and Anna Johnson, Laudato Si’ Movement's Senior Programs Manager for North America, will provide updates and highlight opportunities for action.
We will also provide a space where participants can connect by region or with participants who speak French, to invite community and build collaboration. We are planning to have facilitated online break-out rooms and ask you to help our planning by indicating your preferred break-out room at registration.
We invite you to bring any action initiatives where you would like to seek collaboration as well as any resources to share in the chat box or break-out room. If you would like some time to speak to all participants to provide a regional update, share resources or seek collaboration, please contact the National Gathering coordinator Karen Van Loon ([email protected]), as we are planning a set amount of time for this.
The MLSM Canada National Gathering grew out of the online Regional Roundtables facilitated in four regions in 2021 and 2022. These Roundtables provided MLSM Canada members with a space for building community, deepening ecological spirituality as well as sharing on resources, challenges and strategies.
