Grants Available for Parishes Interested in Climate Action

Hands Holding Plant

This summer's wildfires, floods and storms are a reminder that creation is groaning under the weight of changes in our climate and weather patterns becoming more evident over the last decade. Pope Francis has called for action to address these changes as a means of protecting the planet we each call home. The Mary Knoll Sisters are offering small grants to parishes and schools to "express their care for creation and take climate action." Groups can use the funds for small projects like building a greenhouse to grow flowers and vegetables or a modest composting facility to transform leftover food products into fertilizer. Small projects like these can help educate adults and youth alike on ways to care for the earth.
