On October 4, 2013, Fr. Timothy Lannon SJ signed the St. Francis Pledge to Protect Creation and the Poor, an initiative of the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change.
We Pledge to:
- PRAY and reflect on the duty to care for God?s Creation and protect the poor and vulnerable.
- LEARN about and educate others on the causes and moral dimensions of climate change.
- ASSESS how we-as individuals and in our families, parishes and other affiliations-contribute to climate change by our own energy use, consumption, waste, etc.
- ACT to change our choices and behaviors to reduce the ways we contribute to climate change.
- ADVOCATE for Catholic principles and priorities in climate change discussions and decisions, especially as they impact those who are poor and vulnerable.
The text of Fr. Lannon's homily on the Feast of St. Francis is available here.
We encourage the Creighton community to take the pledge. You can also download your own copy of the signed pledge by clicking on the image above.
