TRULY Pro-Life Consider linking into this Theology of the Body weekend conference/webinar to see how a dynamic Catholic Church is reaching out to our wounded culture and world. This easily accessible format is a great way to familiarize ourselves with some of the tools and weapons that the next few generations of Catholics will need to continue the job of building the Kingdom of God and Teaching the Nations. Did I mention that it is FREE? April 30 to May 2. https://www.tobvirtualconference.com/
EVEN MORE PRO-LIFE Check out the Catholic Climate Covenant’s websiteto see how you can participate in preserving the planet your grandchildren will inherit and how our faith speaks to the many environmental issues. https://catholicclimatecovenant.org/ This week there is also a special webinar featuring the sentiments of Native Americans in the area of the environment; listed on same webpage.
