This year’s June appeal is focused on an extraordinary commitment by one of the Covenant’s board members, Jeff Rauenhorst. Jeff is in the middle of RUNNING all 500 miles of the El Camino de Santiago in an effort to raise bring attention to and raise funds for the Covenant’s Catholic Energies program. You can follow his El Camino pilgrimage here.
It would mean so much to us if you would consider donations to support Jeff and Catholic Energies, sharing his blog, and inviting your family and friends to become Catholic Climate Covenant supporters and donors.
The focus of this Creation Care Team email is the issue of single-use plastic. The program below – “Beyond a Throwaway Culture – Reduce Waste-Grow Community: The Plastics Challenge- can help you reduce use of single-use plastics in your life, family, and community. Many of you, prompted by this years’ Earth Day program, have already signed-up your communities to work on a “plastic challenge” in the next few months. Thank you! We welcome all to join. Please contact me if you have any questions.
Finally, thank you so much to all who worked so diligently to get your Catholic leaders to sign the Catholic Climate Declaration. As of today, over 560 Catholic institutions have joined! We will continue to encourage more signatures leading up to the “Catholic Moment” at the Global Climate Action Summit in September.
