The team is excited to share with you the news of CCL's very first Catholic Climate Conference entitled "A Call to Action for Care of Our Common Home" being held on May 15th, 2021! Registration is now open and free, you can register by clicking here. We hope to see you there!
If you are new to the team, here are a few good ways to get started:
We are a group for Catholic CCL'ers focused on using Catholic Social Teaching on Care for Creation to educate and activate Catholics on global warming and putting a price on carbon. Pope Francis has written an Encyclical, or teaching, Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home. This powerful and far-reaching letter is a perfect moral teaching for CCL to use when speaking to Catholics and people of all faiths.
The Opportunity is Now- watch our Catholic Outreach webinar that describes three actions that you can take now to move your member of congress toward cosponsoring the Energy Innovation Act.
