Earth Day, recognized annually on April 22, is 40 years old this year.
It's a perfect occasion to remember that The St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor was launched one year ago under the auspice of the Catholic Climate Covenant. Over the past year, thousands of Catholic individuals, families, schools, parishes and organizations have pledged to Pray, Learn, Assess, Act and Advocate as part of their commitment.
Join them this week. Take the Pledge.
