CATHOLICS ARE STILL IN

A campaign to publically support the actions of the Paris Climate Agreement has been organized by the Catholic Climate Covenant and is supported by the USCCB. Leaders of catholic schools, parishes, universities, institutions and religious communities are invited to sign onto the Catholic Climate Declaration at: http://www.catholicclimatecovenant.org/catholic-climate-declaration before June 11, 2018 to be included in the June 18, 2018 public announcement.

I encourage each and all of you to participate in this Campaign. It is part of Marguerite’s Answer that I spoke of in the last newsletter. The President’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement does not reflect our stated value of Care for our Common Home. This campaign affords a concrete way of acting in support of that value. I suggest watching the CATHOLICS ARE STILL IN Webinar which was held on May 3, and then making use of the links below to invite leaders of Catholic Institutions to join with us in this public proclamation. In a way, we are in the Climate March (part 2) and you need to march and to invite others to march with us.

On behalf of the Province Leadership Team, Mary Anne Powers will sign the Catholic Climate Declaration at http://www.catholicclimatecovenant.org/catholic-climate-declaration.
