"Fast fashion obscures the beauty of God and muffles the crying of the earth by grabbing our attention with low prices and bright colors.

I’ve recently begun working as an Intern for Youth and Young Adult Mobilization with Catholic Climate Covenant, something I’m not surprised by since Saint Francis and I go way back. I chose him as my patron saint for Confirmation and then proceeded to spend 12 years of my young adult life with a community of Franciscan women. What does surprise me, however, is just how long I had missed the huge connection between ecology and spirituality.
Nobody likes to count the pounds around Thanksgiving, but at St. Pius X and St. Mary of the Assumption Pastorate in Baltimore, Maryland, it can actually be inspiring.
Volunteers in the pastorate’s Giving Garden ministry harvested and delivered 1,150 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to a local food bank in 2021, thanks in part to a grant from Catholic Climate Covenant. Their 2021 harvest was nearly double that of 2019 -- talk about your green thumbs!
The California Conference of Catholic Bishops is joining Pope Francis in the launch of the Laudato Si' Action Platform (LSAP), which kicked off on November 14.
The LSAP is a list of seven goals that the Holy Father has outlined to help spur a worldwide grassroots effort to mobilize Catholics to take action on the environment over a period of seven years.
Today a national coalition of U.S. Catholic organizations announced the “We’re All Part of God’s Plan(et)” campaign to educate, inspire and equip the U.S. Catholic community to embrace and act upon the teachings of Laudato Si’and to care for creation. The U.S. effort follows and supports the Vatican’s launch of the enrollment phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.

Today in Rome, the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development launched the much awaited enrollment phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
