Earth Day 2019
“Because all creatures are connected, each must be cherished with love and respect, for all of us as living creatures are dependent on one another.” Laudato Si’ 42
All Creation Gives God Praise: Protecting Biodiversity in a Time of Climate Crisis
Catholic Climate Covenant has chosen "All Creation Gives God Praise: Protecting Biodiversity in a Time of Climate Crisis" for the 2019 edition of our Earth Day educational program, to complement the Earth Day Network’s 2019 theme, “Protect Our Species.”
The diversity and the populations of the species around us and upon which we depend, are declining at alarming rates. However, we can act to protect our species, through our individual actions, our communities, nationally, and globally. Grounded in scripture, Catholic social teaching, and Laudato Si, this year’s Earth Day program will help mobilize the Catholic community to take urgent action to protect all of God’s creation.
The one-hour educational program will include prayers, readings, a short video, and suggested activities.
