Climate Change Action

The Sisters are engaging in a cooperative effort to draw attention to the global climate change crisis.  They are participating in a call for public action/strikes the week of September 20-27 to bring the crisis to our attention.  We will be holding a prayer service on September 20 at 12:45 PM in the Motherhouse chapel and you are invited to join us there or wherever you might be in calling attention to this critical global concern.  Please note the following information about the crisis we face as a world today.

The actions are being organized by 350.org and international environmental organization addressing the global climate crisis.  Its goal is to end the use of fossil fuels and transition to renewable energy by building a global, grassroots movement.  Safety and justice for people around the globe is critical to its mission.  350.org works with local community groups to bring climate justice to worldwide attention.  They are calling for public worldwide actions to address the critical global situation.  Below you will find several articles and links that provide more information about the crisis and the September actions.
