The Award-Winning Environmental Film Tomorrow Following last Autumn’s series on Laudato Si’, we are continuing the discussion on how to live out this influential document. On Saturday 30th September from 10:30am-2:30pm we will show the thought-provoking French documentary Tomorrow, (Demain) which explores positive responses to some of the challenges posed by changes in our environment and provides some creative ideas about life in our common home. There will be an opportunity for discussion after the showing of the DVD. Because of numbers, please let us know beforehand if you are coming.
