Recognizing the Churchs wisdom and its potential to build up a just and flourishing society, the Napa Institute and The Catholic University of
America invite you to participate in the conference Human Ecology: Integrating 125 Years of Catholic Social Doctrine.
Join Us In Bringing Positive Change To The Business World
Catholic teaching extends into every area of life and culture and this includes the world of business. This rich teaching communicates truths and principles that are relevant to every aspect of human flourishing.
If youre a business executive, CEO, clergy or religious leader, you wont want to miss this opportunity to learn from the speakers, get to know the attendees and spend some time in self-reflection and prayer.
In recognition of the anniversary of Rerum Novarum and Centesimus Annus, as well as the contributions of Pope Francis Laudato Si, the talks will cover human ecology and how to better serve our businesses and community.
Through the lens of the teachings of three popes well consider the following questions:
What is required for a truly sustainable, widespread, and inclusive prosperity? What is the vocation of business leaders who are committed to their Catholic faith, to the common good, and to the life of virtue?
Learn From 3 Popes and 125 Years of Catholic Social Teaching
Pope Leo XIII: Rerum Novarum
Pope Leo wrote that the Churchs desire is that the poor should rise above poverty and they should better their condition in life. He believes that this promotion is most likely to occur through the virtues.
Saint John Paul II: Centesimus Annus
Saint John Paul II notes that the poor are right to ask for a share in the material goods of the society and to make good use for their capacity to work. He notes that in order for this to be the case, certain economic conditions as well as political stability are required for human beings to make good use of their own labor.
Pope Francis:Laudati Si
The Holy Father tells us that business is a vocation and a noble one, it is a vocation provided by God so that each person would be challenged by a greater meaning in life to serve the common good, by striving to increase the goods of this world and making them more accessible to all. In Laudato Si, our Holy Father also examines corporate social responsibility for the common good of an integral ecology and the care for our common home.

party to such fruitful exchanges.
