OurVoices Campaign Updates and 2015 Headlines


FAN is part of the growing community of diverse faiths in 60 countries that OurVoices represents and is proud to announce the upcoming events planned for this year.

OurVoices is triggering an unparalleled spiritual upswell on climate. In less than a year, we’ve built an on-line community of more then 50,000 people of diverse faiths in 60 countries, organized on-the-ground vigils and events in 20 countries and brought faith groups together for the People’s Climate March in NYC. We’re combining the global, on-the-ground presence of faith communities with lively social media - a uniquely powerful way to project the influence and concern about climate from people of faith on every continent. We want a strong climate deal in Paris this December.

Good news for one another: The legacy of Sr. Thea Bowman

Sr. Thea Bowman

The late Sr. Thea Bowman, a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration from Canton, Miss., was nationally known for her work to advance the life of her fellow black Catholics in the church. She was 52 when she died of bone cancer on March 30, 1990, but her legacy as an educator, evangelist and gospel singer lives on.

FAN invites you to read about Sr. Thea in this article written by Tom Roberts for the Global Sisters Report, a Project of the National Catholic Reporter.
