Catholic Climate Ambassadors available

 |  Eco Catholic

The Catholic Coalition on Climate Change has introduced 24 trained Catholic Climate Ambassadors. These ambassadors are available to offer presentations on the moral implications of climate change consistent with Catholic teaching as outlined by the pope in his World Day of Peace Message of 2010, If You Want to Cultivate Peace, Protect Creation, and in the U.S. Catholic bishops’ statement, Global Climate Change: A Plea for Dialogue, Prudence and the Common Good.

Since 2006, the Catholic Coalition on Climate has played a pivotal role in the U.S. Catholic response to the enormous challenge of climate change. levels. The Catholic Climate Ambassador program is intended to accelerate these efforts by raising the awareness of Catholics around the U.S. who worship in our parishes, learn in our schools and lead our many ministries. The Ambassadors are charged with promoting the Catholic Climate Covenant: The St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor.
