The group, called the Dialogue on Climate Change, will show the address Thursday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m., followed by a conversation about the Pope’s comments.
Francis’ address is expected to focus heavily on the environment. It follows the Vatican’s June release of a nearly 200-page climate encyclical.
Organizers hope the timing of their watch party will give students and community members a chance to see the address, since many will be in classes or working when the Pope speaks at 9 a.m. that morning.
The watch party will be held in the Main Lounge of the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center. Parking will be available in the lot directly north of the Center.
