Sisters to pray for climate solutions


DAVENPORT — On Sunday, 10/10/10, at 10 a.m. all are welcome to join the Sisters of Humility (CHM) as they focus on the care of creation and “Pray for Climate Solutions” in the Magnificat Chapel at the Humility of Mary Center, 820 W. Central Park Ave., Davenport.

Prayer participants will join more than 7,000 communities in more than 180 countries as part of a the largest day of carbon-cutting action in the planet’s history, coordinated by, to urge world leaders to take bold and immediate steps to address climate change and reduce carbon emissions.

Sister Johanna Rickl, vice president of the CHM community, said, “Our ability to resolve the climate change crisis depends to a great extent on our ability to imagine an alternative future. We need to see the new possibilities that are emerging rather than become paralyzed by focusing on the damage being done to earth. A time of prayer can free our creative imagination and remind us that, with God, all things are possible.”
