Earth Day: San Rafael Dominican Sisters support climate action

April 27, 2017

In a statement released before Earth Day, April 22, the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael invited “all concerned citizens to join us in studying the issues of climate change in terms of its effect on all living things, the economy, national security, and future generations, to modify our own behaviors as we think appropriate, and to express our concerns to our elected representatives.”

The Dominican Sisters of San Rafael belong to the national Dominican Sisters Conference, which released a public statement March 31 on President Trump’s executive order rolling back the Clean Power Plan.

As part of U.S. sisters’ commitment to the environment, in 2015 the conference commissioned four Dominican sisters as representatives at the Paris 2015 Climate Summit, COP21. “We stand with scientists and spiritual leaders of all faiths. Pope Francis has outlined our moral imperative in his document ‘Laudato Si’,” the conference said.
