During this year’s Season of Creation 2020, Catholic Climate Covenant is pleased to host a five-part webinar series, “On the Common Good & Our Common Home,” for U.S. Catholics to:
- Understand how Catholic social teaching (CST) and creation care are essential to the fullness of faith and the Church’s mission;
- Facilitate courageous conversations about climate change and Catholic civic participation;
- Apply Catholic Social Teaching, including creation care, to form one’s conscience ahead of the 2020 elections.
Season of Creation, celebrated annually between September 1st and October 4th, is a special time for Christians. As we are called to renew our faith in the God of all creation and join in prayer and action for the care of our common home, we hope this webinar series will help us on our journey of love in action.
