Focus on Pope Francis’s encyclical on environment
The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center in Garrison is hosting an exhibit of photography by Brother John O’Hara, a Franciscan Friar of the Atonement. Titled Laudato Si, the exhibit was inspired by Pope Francis’s recent “Laudato Si ‘mi’ Signore” encyclical on the environment.
O’Hara’s photographs will be on view daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Dec. 7 in the Pope John XXIII Parlor on the fifth floor of the center.
O’Hara is a member of the Mission Support team for the Franciscan Friars and chaplain for Hudson Valley Hospice. He earned a bachelor’s degree in photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara California, and a master’s in theology from St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto. In addition to advertising and corporate photography, he photographed images of the civil rights movement and focused on performance photography. He now specializes in decorative photography and lectures on the expression of spirituality through the photographic process.
The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center is located at 1320 Route 9 in Garrison. For more information, call 845-424-2111.
