Catholics Care About Climate Change.
Catholics care about climate change.
Climate change is a moral issue that affects us all. Pope Francis knows that caring for God's creation helps real people, right now-especially the poor and vulnerable. Whether it's a boy in Chicago suffering from asthma or a woman in Ecuador suffering from a mudslide, solving climate change is a way to protect the people God loves. IF you are so inclined, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Drop your loose change into the Rice Bowl for Catholic Relief Service. Give up a LATTE each week and donate the $$$ to TRIALS for HOPE , to help the homeless in our town. Continue your efforts to RESPECT the EARTH by Reducing, Reusing, Refusing, Recycling and Rot (composting). Each of us can CARE for CREATION.
