All Creation Gives God Praise: An Earth Day Webinar

Every year, Catholic Climate Covenant produces a one-hour educational program. This year we are focusing on the issue of protecting biodiversity to complement the Earth Day Network's "Protect Our Species" campaign. In the webinar we explore why the Earth day Network chose the theme of "Protecting Our Species" and all the wonderful resources and toolkits that they have available for your use. We also delve into the Covenant's Earth Day program and how you can facilitate a program in your parish, school, or religious community.
