The feast day of St. Francis of Assisi is celebrated on October 4. For this special occasion, Catholic Climate Covenant has created a 90 minute program guide focused on ways that we can help the environment as we try to emulate St. Francis’ care for the world that God created. The guide and other documents can be edited to better fit your community.
The theme for this year’s St. Francis feast day will be “Dial Down the Heat: Cultivate the Common Good for our Common Home.” The focus will be on creating common ground to have constructive dialogue on climate change. In the spirit of Pope Francis, this is an opportunity to have dialogue about the environmental impact on our poor communities.
The Catholic Climate Covenant is offering a program guide that includes:
- Facilitator’s guide and powerpoint presentation
- Short video with discussion questions
- Suggested group activities
- Advocacy activities
- A sample bulletin announcement
- A sample press release
- A promotional flyer
