Autumn Programme 2021
“Every Bush Aflame. God and the Natural World”
Presented by John Feehan
An exploration of the new understanding of creation that underpins and informs Pope Francis’ exposition of Biodiversity and Nature in Laudato si’. John Feehan’s profound insights into the beauty and wonder of the natural world have led him to become passionate about our responsibility as humans to care for our common home. The programme will consist of lectures, recognition of species, field trips in the surrounding Wicklow area and work with microscopes. There will also be time for meditation and prayer, to ponder on the miraculous in the everyday.
John Feehan is an Irish geologist, botanist, author and broadcaster. His work is driven by a deep commitment to the maintenance of rural biodiversity and cultural heritage, and the sustaining of rural community.
