Catholic Climate Covenant Webinar

From Brother Daniel Salomon

We are excited to let you know about our upcoming webinar and to encourage you to start planning for Earth Day 2017! Scroll down to register for our webinar on Climate and Refugees and to sign up to receive our Earth Day Program Guide. As we prepare for the challenges ahead in 2017, we also hope you will take a few minutes on November 29th to share our Giving Tuesday campaign on social media.

Upcoming Climate Change and Migration/Refugees Webinar-REGISTER TODAY!

     “In the Footsteps of the Holy Family: Refugees
                  in an Era of Climate Change"

                       Wednesday, December 07, 2016
                      3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Eastern Time)


This webinar will explore the impacts that climate change has on human migration and how climate change has already created climate refugees. Joining us will be Dr. Todd Scribner, Education Outreach Coordinator at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Department of Migration and Refugee Services, and Chantel Comardelle, Executive Secretary of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe in Louisiana, who has first-hand experience with displacement due to climate change.

As we enter the Christmas season, we'll take our inspiration from the example of the Holy Family's flight into Egypt, and explore how we are called to care for refugees around the world and to prevent additional displacement by acting on climate change.
Save the Date! MARK YOUR CALENDAR for April 22 and plan to incorporate an Earth Day celebration into your parish or school’s spring programing.  Our Earth Day theme of, “Know the Creator Through Creation” complements the Earth Day Networks’ 2017 focus on climate literacy. The program will help your community understand how the fullness of God is reflected in all of creation and how we are responsible for safeguarding the Creator’s handiwork. The 2017 Earth Day program guide is being shaped now and will be emailed to you by mid-February if you are registered.

The next four years are likely to be challenging for those of us who strongly believe that we have a responsibility to care for God’s creation and the poor. With your support, we will re-double our efforts. Your generous gift will ensure that the Catholic voice and witness remains loud and strong. On Wednesday, November 22 – through Tuesday, November 29 please share our posts on Facebook and Twitter.  The matching donor, Liturgical Publications Inc., is matching all donations given on their special page, which is located here, or here:
