Climate Change/Environment

Many LCWR member congregations have a long history of addressing environmental issues, and LCWR is a member of the Catholic Coalition on climate Change, formed in 2006 with the support of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). A current project of the coalition is promotion of the St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and People in Poverty, posted on the coalition website. Also posted is the August 26, 2009 message of Pope Benedict about economic and social costs of climate change.
