The Economy of Francesco is an event/process to "bring us together and allow us to meet one another and eventually enter into a “covenant” to change today’s economy and to give a soul to the economy of tomorrow."

==> Laudato Si Prayer, Conversion, & Action - how do we create vulnerable space inside ourselves, our lives, and with small groups of others to allow God and the Spirit to flow more freely? What actions does this lead us to? What about the 2-year synod on synodality that Pope Francis is now inviting us to as a start? Are we open to a 7-year journey of encounter with others? Are we feeling called to enroll ourselves and others in this journey?

At our October 1 gathering, we will share the planning work we've started around Laudato Si Circles, Co-op Investor Circles -- intended to support each of us in our own inner work / spiritual journeys and also support the many Francesco change-makers and organizations already living into the new economy we seek.
We hope you'll join us at 12 noon ET / 9am PT on Friday, October 1.
