The diocesan Public Policy Committee has created a small-grants program to help faith communities respond to the moral issues related to global climate change.
The committee had previously identified global climate change as a 2007 education priority.
Parishes, schools and campus communities may apply for grants between $50 and $200 to help fund activities that raise awareness of the causes and effects of global climate change, as well as Catholic social teaching about caring for God’s creations. Funded activities also should suggest ways for individuals, families, and parish or school communities to respond to the issues created by global climate change.
Grant applications are due March 30, and the grants will be awarded by April 30. The funded projects must begin by September, and grant recipients will be asked to provide to the committee feedback about their projects by Dec. 1.
