On Sunday, February 14, from 1:30 to 3:00 PM at Christ the King Church, 1111 Stevens Dr., Richland, WA, Jessie Dye, Program and Outreach Director for Earth Ministry ( will present an overview of Pope Francis' powerful message on the environment. Jessie was formerly the Special Assistant to the Vicar General, Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle. The encyclical, which builds on writings from Pope Saint John XXIII through Pope Benedict XVI, emphasizes that environmental protection is central to Catholic faith. The Pope asked that we "enter into dialogue with all people about our common home." Please join us for this important discussion.
