Jesuits Care for the Environment with Catholic Climate Declaration

The Jesuits of the USA Central and Southern (UCS) Province have joined with the Jesuit Conference and the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities to endorse the Catholic Climate Declaration. The Declaration affirms the commitment of U.S. Catholic institutions to stand by the Paris Climate Agreement and help meet its goals.  

This province’s Jesuit works and communities are encouraged to join the province by reading and signing the Declaration here.  

Soon after Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ was released in 2015, global leaders signed the Paris Climate Agreement, which united nearly every nation in seeking measurable ways of curbing climate change. This agreement responded to the call of Laudato Si’ to care for the earth and its inhabitants, particularly those who are most vulnerable.  

In 2017, the United States government withdrew from the Paris Agreement. The Catholic Climate Declaration is an important effort to tell the world that Catholics are still committed to addressing climate change

The deadline for singing, June 11, 2018, is quickly approaching. The Catholic Climate Declaration will be publicly released on June 18, the third anniversary of Laudato Si’, after which there will be an opportunity for individuals to sign on.
