As a congregation, the Sisters of St. Agnes have a longtime commitment to the conservation of the land entrusted to us. We have cared for the soil, tended the woods and preserved the integrity of the springs that flow through the Congregations’ property in Fond du Lac. Our solar installation represents our corporate commitment to future generations and comes at a time when Pope Francis is calling upon the church, and the world, to take seriously the threat posed to our human dignity from the effects of climate change.
