Earth Day (April 22) Resources
"We choose to recommit ourselves to care for Earth, attending to the issues of climate change, the human right to clean water, and the dangers of extractive industries.” – Sisters of Mercy’s A Word of Comfort to Our Suffering World, June 2017
Let us deepen our understanding of the threats facing Our Common Home and consider action to protect our environment and stand in solidarity with communities impacted by extractive industries and climate change.
We and our partners in the Catholic Climate Covenant and Global Catholic Climate Movement offer these resources to respond through prayer, advocacy, and changes in personal lifestyles and institutional policies.
- Pray with Laudato Si
- Reflect on climate change connected to all of Mercy’s Critical Concerns
- Focus on our throw-away culture through prayer, education and action
- Join the Sisters of Mercy in Ireland in their Journey Away from Plastic
- Plan a “green Mass” on Sunday, April 22 and send postcards to your bishop urging him to a greater commitment to creation care within your diocese
