The Letter: A Message for Our Earth

Canisius College will screen the film “The Letter: A Message for Our Earth,” for the campus community on Monday, October 17, from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. in the Regis Room.

This feature length documentary is an unprecedented call to action from one of the world’s most iconic leaders, Pope Francis. In it, he calls on all people to stand together for the future of our planet and offers a humbling reminder of our responsibility as members of a society to come together in solidarity for the greater good of one another and the preservation of our planet.
