Pray for Climate Solutions
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 10:00 - 11:00
Start the 10:10:10 Global Work Party with prayer. On Sunday, 10/10/10 at 10:00 am all are welcome to join the Sisters of Humility as they focus on the care of creation and "Pray for Climate Solutions" in the Magnificat Chapel at the Humility of Mary Center.
Prayer participants will join more than 7,000 communities in over 180 countries as part of the largest day of carbon-cutting action in the planet's history, coordinated by 350.org, to urge world leaders to take bold and immediate steps to address climate change and reduce carbon emissions.
Sister Johanna Rickl, vice-president of the CHM community said, “Our unity of spirit has its roots in the spirit of God. With God there is always a way to meet life's challenges, to rise above what appear to be limiting circumstances.”
Sisters and guests will gather for a group photo which will be downloaded to the 350.org website, joining hundreds of thousands of people all over the planet taking action to ensure a safe climate and a just future.
