Beginning in 1990 the Congregation of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart affirmed four corporate stands:(click on any stand below for more information)

Our Corporate Stands help the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart  focus our efforts in  advocacy, ministry and prayer.  We continuously educate ourselves about these issues in relationship to our Catholic faith. We are happy to share our knowledge with you so that we may work together to create a more compassionate world.

The Earth Committee supports the Principles of the Earth Charter by educating the Congregation, Grey Nun Associates and Colleagues on issues such as Fracking, clean water, and climate change and encouraging them to advocate for or against legislation around these issues.

  • Through our ministry in Haiti, we became aware of SOIL a process for turning waste into clean compost.



EarthHeart is an earth-based spirituality ministry of prayer and awareness which is active in the Buffalo area with the leadership of Sr. Sheila Stone.




We welcome your questions and comments about our advocacy efforts and invite you to stay informed through our blog.
