Care for creation
FAN hosted multiple events to support the pope's visit to Washington DC in September, 2015. We invited people to join us in supporting him, his message, and increasing public awareness of the issues he spoke on by participating in one or all of the events listed below.
1. Catholic Climate Petition (Now until November 30) - Petiton endorsed by Pope Francis being signed to call on global leaders to take action on climate change.
Pope Francis endorsed a Catholic petition calling for bold climate action after meeting with the newly created Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM) on Wednesday.
Attached are the slides used in the OurVoices information webinar that took place on October 30th, 2014.
On Sunday, October 26th, FAN participated in an interfaith workshop program in Connecticut. People from various faiths came together to hear keynote speaker, Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker, a senior lecturer and research scholar from Yale University. Mary Evelyn talked about what faith communities can bring to the climate change discussion and how our "principles will guide us through a difficult change" that needs to happen for the future of the planet to survive.
FAN is thrilled to share this blog posting by New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan endorsing the People's Climate March this Sunday and calling on Catholics to have a strong representation among the marchers.
