In response to the Spring 2016 Theology Institute with speaker Dawn Nothwehr on Catholic environmental ethics in Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ Biology professor Angela Hejl took the lesson into the classroom.

“I did an activity in lab for Bio 106 asking students to reflect on some of the moral issues associated with environmental protection.   In particular,  I asked them to consider the effects on the poor and on future generations and offer solutions to the challenge of living sustainably.  My learning objective was that students come to the realization that it is a moral issue that must be addressed and we are called to be stewards of Earth’s resources.”

Angela Hejl

Biology Teacher, Mount Marty College

What we offer:

The Benedictine Sisters’ Theology Institute provides bi-annual half-day offerings for the ongoing theological and spiritual formation of the Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery. The ecumenical public is invited to attend these programs free of charge.

What to expect:

Recent programs have invited participants to “think theologically” about a variety of contemporary issues facing Christians.

The Fall 2015 speaker, Dianne Bergant, CSA, provided a biblical context for considering Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’, on “Care of our Common Home.”

On April 9, moral theologian Dawn Nothwehr, OSF, presented “Laudato Si’ and Catholic Environmental Ethics in a Franciscan Key.”
