Bruce Friedrich: Care for God’s Creation  

On Saturday Sept. 19  from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, Dominican Center at Marywood welcomes thought leader Bruce Friedrich to a conversation about his belief that concern for humans, the environment, and animals are interrelated. He will reflect on how these concerns animate the way he lives out his faith. Bruce will share how his faith and spiritual awareness have inspired his journey and led to his conviction and response, both personally and professionally, especially in the areas of animal advocacy and food justice. He will draw from Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’ On Care for Our Common Home throughout his presentation.

Bruce Friedrich is director of policy and engagement with Farm Sanctuary, a national farm animal protection organization.

The mission of Dominican Center at Marywood is to foster the growth and the transformation of persons, communities and organizations through prayer, learning and collaboration in an inclusive, hospitable environment. A Spirituality and Conference Center, located on the peaceful 34-acre Marywood campus, Dominican Center welcomes individuals and groups. Retreatants seeking a contemplative environment find a home where they can take the next step and deepen their spiritual journey. In addition to retreats, individuals may participate in a variety of programs — focusing on one’s physical and spiritual needs.

Groups find a serene atmosphere for meetings and conferences with free parking and barrier-free accessibility. We offer accommodation for workshops, programs, training, staff planning, legal mediation, company picnics, holiday gatherings, luncheons and receptions for profit and nonprofit, church, business and city, state and government groups.
