Our Mission

The American Teilhard Association explores and shares the insights and cosmic vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. through scholarship, artistic expression, and educational programming.

We affirm and carry forward:

  • his reverence for the interrelatedness of all things;
  • his call for an expanding evolutionary consciousness;
  • his recognition of the intrinsic value of human effort;
  • his confidence in the power of love; and
  • the implications of his vision for the spiritual, theological, social, political, and environmental health of our world.
