The mission of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation ministry is to explore CSA's distinct contribution to the ongoing, nonviolent transformation of the world towards peace, justice and ecology. This work embraces the efforts of sisters, associates, co-workers and others who share the CSA vision. We live out the mission to bring about systemic change by using the lens of nonviolence to focus on the issues of women, children, health care, globalization (especially as it affects Latin America), seamless ethic of life.

Season of Creation: Sept 30

September 30, 2021
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

SEE

At the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in October 2021, world leaders can set meaningful targets to protect creation. In November, at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), countries will announce their plans to meet the goals of the Paris agreement. Ahead of those meetings, Catholics around the world are being asked to lift up the voices of the most vulnerable and advocate on their behalf.

Our ask:

  1. Tackle the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis together
  2. Limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and promise no more biodiversity loss
  3. Ensure equitable global action, including support for those most affected.
  4. Protect and respect human rights, including rights of Indigenous People and local communities in climate and biodiversity action

We must act now. Please read, sign, and share the Healthy Planet, Healthy People Petition

ACT

In light of the growing impact of climate change on the global community, we, the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes, honoring our interdependence with all of God's creation and in a spirit of nonviolence, personally and communally renewed and recommitted to care for Earth, home of all living creatures by way of a corporate stance in May 2016. The Care for Earth stance was then affirmed by the Associate Community in November 2020. This stance will continue to guide us in our Laudato Si' journey towards integral ecology.

INTERCESSION

That we may have leaders who provide for the advancement of our world without taking resources from others to achieve it, we pray.
