Catholic Climate Covenant
Catholic Climate Covenant helps US Catholics respond to the Church's call to care for creation and the poor. They are grounded in the Church's deep history of teaching on creation, ecology, and the poor.
With the approval and support of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, they help guide the US Church's response to the moral call for action on climate change by sharing authentic Catholic teaching on creation and the poor and by informing and inspiring community leaders to take action (education); by sharing stories of those most affected by climate impacts in the public square (public witness); and by providing concrete tools, techniques, and technical assistance to help Catholic peoples and institutions reduce their carbon footprint and to work for justice (resources).
Catholics Confront Global Poverty
Catholics Confront Global Poverty is an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Relief Services. As the official voice of the Catholic Church in the U.S., they call on Catholics and our nation to defend the lives and dignity of people living in poverty worldwide, through advocacy and action.
The Global Catholic Climate Movement
