Sunday Forum 10/17: "Catholic Social Teachings and Climate Justice"
Sunday, October 17, 2021, 9:15 AM
The Church of St. Martin-In-The-Fields' Sunday Forum series is a weekly seminar and community discussion about topics relevant to the church and our faith. Sunday Forum takes place each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall. You can also join by Zoom. The Zoom link can be found in our weekly Field Notes (subscribe here).
Join Beyond Borders for a virtual tour of their work in Haiti. The tour will take you to the community of Nan Mango on Lagonav Island to meet Genese Doirin and her family who graduated from the Family Sponsorship Program and escaped extreme poverty. We'll also meet Carline Augustin, a mother who got the help she needed to free her daughter from slavery. And we’ll take you to Port-au-Prince to meet Jisika Jean Claude, a woman in our Adult Survivors of Child Slavery network who broke free of her shame and became a leader fighting to free and protect children.
Beyond Borders works to end child slavery, prevent violence against women and girls, guarantee a quality education for every girl and boy, and lift families out of extreme poverty.
