Caroljean Willie, S.C. and Board member of Ohio Interfaith Power & Light will keynote this year.
We are experiencing a pivotal moment in the world’s awareness and acceptance of the challenge of climate change. Some evidence of this: the widespread acclamation for Pope Francis’ first encyclical letter, Laudato Si; the issuing of bold, new Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations that speak to every nation on earth; the resulting anticipation around the Paris Conference on Climate Change. There is a growing recognition around the planet that we must put into action plans that will be effective both within and across national boundaries.
Join the Mount community on April 14 as Sister Caroljean Willie shares her perspective on this important topic which affects all of us.
