Sisters of Mercy of the Americas sign onto Catholic Climate Declaration
The Sisters of Mercy of the Americas is pleased to announce that all five U.S. Mercy communities and 37 Mercy ministries and institutions signed onto the Catholic Climate Declaration that was released June 18, the third anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’.
The declaration, launched by the Catholic Climate Covenant, is a Catholic expression of the We Are Still In campaign in which more than 2,700 cities, states, corporations, investors and other institutions have stated public support for the Paris Climate Agreement.
“This declaration expresses the U.S. Catholic community’s call to climate action, arising from our theological foundation, proclaimed to all within our one human family. From this call we envision, pray for, and act towards a thriving future, with our family and the gift of God’s creation, “ says the Catholic Climate Convenant.
