ACTION RE Travel Offsets

In her newsletter of 26 February 2015, Congregational Leader Sister Catherine Reuter urged Sisters to respond to the invitation of the Care for Creation group to make a voluntary donation to an environmental fund, as one small way to offset the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere by planes and cars.

This invitation resulted from a consultation by the Care for Creation group with sisters attending a congregational gathering and after meeting with the Leadership Team.  It was decided that the gift would be on a voluntary basis and the annual amount to be determined by the sister. Further details may be found in the March Care for Creation newsletter published on this website.

As Sisters of Mercy, we are called by the newness of the Gospel in every age so as to discover who are the poor and vulnerable now.  The signs of our time show us that among the most poor and vulnerable of today is the Earth community.
