The Sisters of the Presentation have had solar panels installed on our property at Mt. St. Joseph as a tangible sign of our desire to care for Earth by reducing our carbon footprint. The members of our Earth committee led the dedication ceremony on, September 9, 2021. This ceremony was live-streamed on our Facebook page and our website.
During the service, references were made to the words of Pope Frances from his encyclical “Laudato Si” in which he states: “As never before in history, common destiny beckons us to seek a new beginning … let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.”
