Earth Committee

Written on: November 30, 2018

Our Grey Nun charism opens us to engage in all of the environmental issues addressed in Pope Francis’ Laudato Si.  We are compelled to care for our common home.

So, at this critical time in global efforts to mitigate the disastrous effects of Climate Warming, our Grey Nun Earth Committee has renewed its intention to facilitate a culture of eco-spirituality for our sisters, associates and friends.

The committee has enlarged its membership and set goals for the year ahead. In 2019, we will use Part I and Part II of the Earth Charter as our focus, encompassing “Respect and care for the community of life” and “Ecological Integrity.

Our challenge is to re-awaken and support our Earth Charter Stance through prayer opportunities, advocacy and direct action on behalf of our common home. Please pray for the success of our efforts.

The statement above is one such effort…Please look for our posts on our social media pages, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
