Kat Doyle has served as Director of Justice & Peace Ministries for the Archdiocese of Atlanta for 13 years. She will help us understand and appreciate Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si, On Care for Our Common Home.” Kat educates on, raises awareness of and advocates for, social justice issues including Care for Creation. In 2020, Kat was appointed as the U.S. representative for the Vatican’s “Laudato Si,” and Dioceses Working Group, where she interacts with a group of global experts who focus on creating an Action Platform easily accessible for parishes & dioceses worldwide.
She has a heart for sustainable living and embraces integral ecology, which hears the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.
