World Environment Day 2019
We, Sisters of Mercy Parramatta Congregation, are committed to a future for all Creation
'We, the Sisters of Mercy of the Parramatta Congregation, acknowledge gratefully that we are co-creators with the Divine, in an evolving "sacrament of communion" which includes everything that exists' (Chapter Statement)
5 June is World Environment Day, the United Nations principle vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment, now in its 45th year.
Issues such as water conservation and climate challenge us all to take action to protect and restore the environment.
Our commitment to do so is expressed in our Chapter Statement which reads (in part):
'We will enjoy and celebrate Earth's beauty and bounty and her many species. We will honour our duty to love and care for her and add to her well-being wherever possible.'
