RECongress Keeping 'Green'
| The Los Angeles
Religious Education Congress is committed to live our faith by protecting
God's creation and advocating on behalf of people in poverty who face the
hardest impact of global climate change.
Affirming our desire to
care for the earth, we encourage you (if possible) to choose the option of
online registration for Congress 2010. This simple initiative will help
reduce paper waste and ultimately help protect the environment.

This workshop will explore the serious moral questions raised by environmental degradation, particularly climate change. What does an authentically Catholic approach to climate change look like? What are Pope Benedict and the Catholic bishops saying? How can I make a difference as an individual, a teacher, a student? We will focus specifically on the Catholic Climate Covenant: The St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor.
Life in Abundance? Catholic Teaching on the Environment and Impact on Poor People Sunday, March 21, 1:00-2:30 pm
Speaker: Daniel J. Misleh
