In 2019, we agreed: “Urgent needs call us, Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and Associates, Consociates, ‘Ohana and Familia de San José, to bold conversation and prophetic action. Striving to be beacons of hope, we commit to respond to the crisis of Earth and global warming.”
We commit, individually and communally, to recognizing how our decisions impact the Earth community; to raising our awareness and changing behaviors; to acting with urgency to protect Earth’s stability and integrity; and to celebrating her beauty wherever we are.
Annually, we communally celebrate Earth Day, Plastic-Free July and the Season of Creation.
Join us in some of our communal actions to address the crisis of Earth.
