Catholic Climate Ambassadors Discuss Laudato Si in New York

By path2positive

Over the weekend (March 5th), Blessed Tomorrow's partner, Catholic Climate Covenant, joined six Catholic climate ambassadors at Paul Smith's College to discuss the "Climate Change as a Moral Issue," and other teaching gleaned from the Pope Francis' Encyclical Laudato Si. Blessed Tomorrow Leader and executive director of the Catholic Climate Covenant, Daniel Misleh, led the healthy discussion, sharing, “Moral issues by definition are problems and concerns that affect the human family. Catholics like everybody else, we care about creation and the gifts of the Earth..."

Misleh and the Catholic Climate Covenant have been working toward raising climate awareness and care for creation for decades, conducting outreach to people of faith - enabling them to act on climate with Catholic teachings in mind. The Catholic Climate Ambassadors program was launched in 2010 in partnership with Catholic Climate Covenant and continues to be a source of guidance for the Catholic climate community.

Pope Francis's encyclical spurs Catholic Climate Covenant

Robin Caudell | Press-Republican

PAUL SMITHS — Pope Francis released his 192-page encyclical, "Laudato Si" ("Be praised"), on the environment last June, and the ripples reach Paul Smith’s College Saturday evening.

The college hosts a nationwide summit on climate change including workshops in climate science by faculty, students, staff and the Wild Center staff.

“It’s a gathering of volunteer people from around the country who are supporting the pope’s efforts to spread the word about environmental issues and treat climate change as not only a scientific problem but also a moral and spiritual problem,” said Dr. Curt Stager, a professor of natural sciences at the college.

A panel discussion titled, “Climate Change as a Moral Issue,” will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Freer Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
