Catholics & The Climate March
On Sunday, April 23, 2017 in Washington Square North, NYC, our organization and its supporters marched with Rev. Fletcher Harper of GreenFaith and Nancy Lorence of the Metro NY Catholic Climate Movement to bring attention to this very important issue.
Rev. Harper is an Episcopal priest and a world leader in developing innovative programs linking religious belief and practice to the environment. An award-winning spiritual writer and nationally-recognized preacher on the environment, Fletcher teaches and speaks at houses of worship from a range of denominations nationally and internationally about the moral, spiritual basis for environmental stewardship and justice. He is the author of GreenFaith: Mobilizing God’s People to Protect the Planet (Abingdon Press, 2015). Rev. Harper was instrumental in gathering 20,000 people in the faith contingent of the historic 2014 People’s Climate March here in NYC.
Nancy Lorence, a member of the coordinating team of the Metro New York Catholic Climate Movement, will speak about the engagement of Catholics in the environmental and climate change issues, some of the motivating factors in their commitment, and the various Catholic organizations mobilizing to have a significant Catholic presence at the climate march on April 29th to make a powerful statement about climate change as a moral issue that concerns us all.
WOW… who knew that the hypothetical PAUL RYAN US budget could become a reality post November elections when our Chapter had an AMERICA magazine senior editor talk in October 2016 on “Whether the Ryan US budget is Catholic?”
