The theme of this year’s Earth Day is “Protect Our Species”. Every year we are more aware of the connection we as human beings have with every species on the planet. We acknowledge our responsibility to the planet and all living things. Rachel Carson stated: “In nature, nothing exists alone”. The Sisters of St. Francis are dedicated to the mission of caring for creation in all its forms. Join us in our concern and our actions to care for God’s creation by participating in your local Earth Day activities.
