April 22, 2013

On Earth Day Catholics are taking the St. Francis Pledge to Care for Creation and the Poor and joining the Catholic Climate Covenant. As Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity we highlight our Sisters celebrating vows of 75 and 60 years as our models of faith-filled women religious who protect God’s Creation and advocate on behalf of people in poverty who face the harshest impacts of global climate change. Congratulations, Sisters,  and thank you for your dedication to the world and all its peoples for not just one day or one year, but many years!

St. Francis reverence for all of creation included even the very deep layer beneath the surface of the earth where diamonds are formed under extreme geological conditions. Our diamond celebration of commitment by our Sisters includes gathering and sharing the stories of each one of our celebrants and the people who have changed and touched their lives. We promise to take the time periodically during this coming year to share more deeply on each of the Sisters and their call to be Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, women of faith, women of service. Enjoy images of some touching moments this last weekend.
