Holy Cross Joint Statement on Climate Change

Leaders of the four Congregations of Holy Cross have issued a joint statement on climate change, declaring “Earth and the life it sustains are precious gifts from God” and calling action to safeguard these gifts “a moral responsibility integral to the mission of the Family of Holy Cross.”

The statement commits the four congregations — sisters, brothers and priests — to act collaboratively to stem the global climate crisis. These actions include fostering an ethos of care for God’s creation, resisting the culture of consumerism, reducing energy consumption, and achieving carbon neutrality in the congregations by 2050.
