UISG Campaign = “Showing Hope for the Planet”, Presentation of the Commitment. Sr. Sheila Kinsey, fcjm
On June 18, 2018, the UISG Board launched the campaign: Sowing Hope for the Planet, sharing efforts of women religious in putting Laudato Sí into practice.
The timing of the campaign comes with the growing awareness and urgency of climate change and the need to address its impact on the environment and society. Laudato Sí’ offers a spiritual relationship and solutions to a seriously critical situation that are so desperately needed in our world today.
The concept note was developed through the collaborative efforts of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Secretariat and the Global Catholic Climate Movement through the initiative of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG), bringing together the richness and connections of its member congregations, so that the “interdependence obliges us to think of one world with a common plan.” (LS#164)
