New Website for Environmental Justice

As people of Faith, we are convinced that "the earth is the Lord's and all it holds….We believe our response to global climate change should be a sign of our respect for God's creation. (Global Climate Change: A Plea for Dialogue, Prudence and the Common Good, US Catholic Bishops, 2001)

In the past several months, several parishes have screened the film, "An Inconvenient Truth." Many are looking for next steps...to discover what can they do and where can they find more information on global warming and climate change.

There is a new website, "Faithful Stewards of God's Creation: A Catholic Resource for Environmental Justice and Climate Change," which is available at: www.usccb.org/sdwp/ejp/climate.

This website includes a compilation of Church teaching on environmental justice and climate change and other educational resources for parishes. Some additional materials are forthcoming and a printed kit is expected to be available through USCCB Publishing in January 2007. This is the place to go if you are interested in working further on this important issue!
