Movie Screening of ‘The Letter’


We are organizing an event at Nano Nagle Birthplace next Sunday, January 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Oak Room of the Conference Centre.  We really hoping you can come.  The event is a screening of The Letter, a new documentary organized by Pope Francis about how spiritual values call us to take action on the planetary crisis. It focuses on a small group of people from around the world who have an encounter with Pope Francis that gives them new hope. The movie will call us to reflection about how our daily actions impact Care for our Common Home.

THIS spectacular 80-minute movie will inform and challenge us and we think you will really enjoy it. Please feel free to bring secondary school children. We’d love to hear and share what young people think about these issues.

We hope you can you make it!

The Letter tells the story about the Pope’s call to care for our planet. For info on translated versions and how to take action, visit In 2015, Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si’ (The Letter); an encyclical letter about the environmental crisis to every single person in the world. A few years later, four voices that have gone unheard in global conversations have been invited to an unprecedented dialogue with the Pope. Hailing from Senegal, the Amazon, India, and Hawai’i, they bring perspective and solutions from the poor, the indigenous, the youth, and wildlife into a conversation with Pope Francis himself. This documentary follows their journey to Rome and the extraordinary experiences that took place there, and is packed with powerfully moving personal stories alongside the latest information about the planetary crisis and the toll it’s taking on nature and people. Because, in the words of the Laudato Si’ Movement chair Lorna Gold, “once you know, you CANNOT look away.”
