FAN's Associate Director, Sr. Marie Lucey developed this resource for her community to use as a prayer service for Earth Day. The theme for 2018 Earth Day is mobilizing the world to End Plastic Pollution. Our society's overuse of single-use disposable plastics contributes to what Pope Francis calls “the throwaway culture.” Then, we must consider the affect plastics have on our oceans, where marine life get entangled and ingest these plastics which causes great suffering of God's creatures.
We invite our members and friends to use this resource in your own prayer service to raise awareness of our use of plastics and how our actions impact our Common Home.
Peace and All Good
