Missionary Oblates Sign Catholic Climate Declaration

June 27th, 2018

The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate has joined hundreds of Catholic institutions in signing the U.S Catholic Climate Declaration. The declaration reaffirms commitment to climate goals outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement.   

Rev. Fr. James Brobst OMI, Vicar Provincial, was authorized to sign the Catholic Climate Declaration on behalf of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. The signing is timely for many Catholics as June 2018 marks the third anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’, which calls for care for God’s Creation and protection of the poor. Jose Aguto, Associate Director for Catholic Climate Covenant in a letter to Fr. Brobst OMI, stated that “the declaration affirms our shared commitment in prayer, word and deed to meet its goals for the sake of the one human family and Our Common Home.”

To read the Catholic Climate Declaration, please visit the Catholic Climate Covenant’s website.   (More signatures are still need needed. Parishes are encouraged to sign the declaration)
