The Sylvania Franciscan Village invites individuals to attend “They Will Inherit the Earth: Peace & Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change” with Father John Dear on Tuesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. at the Franciscan Center of Lourdes University, 6832 Convent Blvd., in Sylvania. Fr. John Dear will go in detail about his book and allow the audience to experience the process of creating this one of a kind masterpiece. A book signing will follow. The event is free and open to the public; however, donations are accepted.

Fr. John Dear is a longtime peace activist, lecturer, teacher and author of 35 books including Thomas Merton, Peacemaker; Lazarus Come Forth!; Living Peace; The Nonviolence Life; and The Beatitudes of Peace. His newest book and landmark work – They Will Inherit the Earth – connects acts of nonviolence and solidarity with Creation. Fr. Dear shows how our global epidemic of violence and war can only lead to catastrophic climate change and why we need to help build the global grassroots movement of nonviolence if we are to protect creation. He invites individuals to rise to the occasion and do what they can to welcome a new culture of peace and nonviolence.
