After the Symposium: read a report by Catherine Sheehan

The Creation Spirituality Symposium was held in May. 

Read about it here. 

Care for all that Exists: A Symposium on Creation Spirituality. The title of this year’s Symposium is from the Pope’s encyclical Laudato Si, a core summary of Saint Francis’ Canticle. The three day event involves a wide range of outstanding speakers on the theology and spirituality of Creation. The symposium is broad-ranging and includes scriptural, cosmological, scientific and activist interpretations.

‘Deep Incarnation: The Meaning of Incarnation for the Natural World’

‘I taught theology at Flinders University in Adelaide before joining ACU at the beginning of 2014. Adelaide has always been my home, and I am a priest of the archdiocese, attached to Tranmere parish. My post-graduate studies were at Fordham in New York and The Catholic University of America in Washington DC, where my doctoral supervisor was Avery Dulles, and my dissertation was on the dynamics in faith in John of the Cross and Karl Rahner. In recent years I have taught mainly in Christology, Trinity and some ecclesiology. In the light of evolutionary science, and because of the ecological crisis we face, I have been exploring a theology of the natural world and trying to ground it in the heart of Christian faith.’
