Please join us in prayer for a successful and positive outcome of the United Nations Climate Change Conference November 6 – 18.
Commonly referred to as COP27, this 2022 conference is being held in Egypt, in the city of Sharm El Sheikh, November 6 to 18.
“Sharm El Sheikh is Egyptian for the city of peace, an apt name for the international gathering to address the increasing urgency for climate crisis action. The city is located about 50 miles from Mt. Sinai, a site sacred to three major faith traditions, all of whom recognize the one Creator whose love encompasses the whole of life,” writes Dusty Farnan OP, our Dominican NGO Representative at the United Nations in NY and International Justice Promoter for the Dominican Sisters Conference.
“This is a gathering of heads of State, ministers and negotiators, climate activists, mayors, civil society representatives, CEOs, and concerned citizens from many nations who come together to continue the on-going efforts to revitalize international cooperation on climate action. It is essential that they hear from as many voices as possible. We are all of us affected by the growing consequences of climate change.”
The Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids joins the Dominican Family in prayerful solidarity with Sr. Dusty and all people of good will who will be attending this gathering, in the hope that the integrity of Earth and all her inhabitants, both human and non-human, will be placed at the center of all deliberations.
