A day of connection and conversation with organizations committed to building a more sustainable future guided by the goal of Laudato Si'.

About this event

Catholic Sisters of Northeast Ohio invite you to a day of connection and conversation, guided by the goals of Laudato Si’, to understand how organizations of greater Cleveland are responding to the current ecological crisis.

We each play a role in protecting our Home, and this gathering is open to everyone, regardless of faith community or background.

The focus of this day is to build community, understand the ways that many Northeast Ohio organizations are responding to the interconnected crises of poverty and climate change, and discuss how we can build on this work together.
