World Environment Day, June 5, is recognized annually around the world as the “people’s day” to contribute to the care of the Earth. This is an issue very close to the heart of our Sisters and Associates, who honor the inherent interconnectedness of all life.
Medical Mission Sisters are participating in the UN Climate Change Conference and its related activities around the world in a variety of ways. Two of our Sisters are at the Paris conference the first week it meets and three will take their places the second week. A number of our Sisters and Associates joined thousands in London, Frankfurt and Washington, DC, over the weekend, in interfaith prayer gatherings, rallies and marches, to draw attention to the importance of reducing greenhouse gases for the sake of the health and life of our planet and all of its inhabitants.
