Carondelet Earth Committee

Our 2019 Chapter Statement of Future Direction called us to “strive to be beacons of hope” by responding to the crisis of Earth and global warming. The Carondelet Earth Committee crafted a letter entitled “Climate Change is Different from Any Other Issue.” All our leadership teams have signed on, and all sisters and ACOF are invited to sign on as individuals or groups.

Ad Hoc Earth Committee



Our Congregational Chapter 2013 committed us to act with urgency to protect Earth’s stability and integrity.

Committee Members: Danielle Bonetti, Liz Kerwin, Toni Nash, Lin Neil, Cathy Steffens, and Jeanene Yackey
