On October 25, Sister Dulce María Rodríguez López received her Diploma in Laudato Si’ and Sustainable Development from the Universidad Centroamericana.
The diploma program was a project of Asociación Roncalli-Juan XXIII and was sponsored by the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD) of England. 21 professionals from CAFOD partner agencies strengthened their knowledge on climate change, agroecology, and resilience through the lens of the “Care of the Common Home” as referenced in Pope Francis’s encyclical, Laudato Si’. Sister Dulce attended as a representative of CANTERA - a center in Managua for promoting education, growth and development among the people.
The inaugural diploma program began on June 14, 2019 and was taught by Alirio Cáceres Aguirre who has a Master’s Degree in theology and eco-theology. A mixed methods approach was utilized to allow participants to learn in classrooms and in the Nicaraguan forests.
On October 27, six CSA Associates will journey to Arizona to visit with sisters and associates living and working near the Mexican border. As part of the trip, the Associates will hear stories from recent immigrants, visit tent cities, witness "streamlining," and learn about the details of the sisters ministries in Bisbee and Tucson.
Follow along with their story each day as the participants take turns reflecting on their experiences. Updates will be posted to our Special Stories blog "At the Border - Tucson."
