Our Common Home

During 2016, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia made a renewed commitment to live in a more ecological and just way after reading Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si, Care for Our Common Home.” We hope to do so by study, prayer and action. We also hope to work together with other like-minded people. As part of that, we will use this space to share awareness of ecological issues, as well as information for action and thought.
