The Catholic Climate Covenant (CCC) invites anyone who is interested to lead a Feast of St. Francis Event. The feast of St. Francis honors the patron saint of those who promote ecology. By leading an event, you too can promote better care of the creation through an interactive, hands-on, thought-provoking activity. The CCC provides a 15-minute video on Pope Francis’s encyclical and climate change, hands-on activity guides, advocacy opportunities, and resources to continue this kind of work. Register to lead an event and access this free program here, before the feast day on October 4.
