Catholic Schools and Climate Strikes

September 6, 2019

Catholic school students can stand up for the gospel and for the planet by joining the next Climate Strikes on September 20 and 27. Pope Francis himself calls Catholic youth to participate: “I want the Church to go out to the streets . . . in the name of God, defend Mother Earth!” Since the strikes will occur during the Season of Creation, (September 1 to October 4) there are many creative ways to participate. See this guide for ideas and an overview of safety concerns. And, be sure to register your school’s strike or event here.
