Conference at the Vatican

Tuesday, Jun. 29, 2010

Center Executive Director Kirk O. Hanson returned today from a conference at the Vatican, "Towards an Economy Supporting the Human Family: Person, Society, Institutions."

Hanson was a panelist for a session on "North American Perspectives on Caritas in Veritate," the 2009 Papal Encyclical described by the US Conference of Bishops as "a call to see the relationship between human and environmental ecologies and to link charity and truth in the pursuit of justice, the common good, and authentic human development. "  He is shown here with co-panelists and Stefano Zamagni, a member of the committee that drafted Caritas in Veritate.
