Provincial Statement on Ecology

As we continue to reflect on the message of the papal encyclical, it is a good time to review the Province's Statement on Ecology, drafted in 2008.  It is available on our website (along with some other good resources), and is quoted below in its entirety. Question:  How are we doing with this commitment?

Sisters of Christian Charity, North American Eastern Province Statement on Ecology

Because we recognize creation as God's gift to us, 
the Sisters of Christian Charity are committed
to a harmonious and interdependent relationship
with the earth and its creatures.
We will be guided by the principles
of sustainability and environmental accountability
in our decisions and actions
as we claim responsibility 
toward self, others and all of creation.
