Global Catholic Climate Movement
We use the season of Lent to prepare ourselves for Easter, when Christ changed the world with his resurrection. This Lent, you too can help change the world, by joining Global Catholic Climate Movement as we ask ourselves how we want to rebuild after the pandemic. Humanity has a chance to be better shepherds of God’s creation by rebuilding our lives, our communities, and our countries in more just and sustainable ways.

As you will see in our Lenten calendar, you are encouraged weekly to reflect, repent, renew, and connect with others in the community during the season. We will have five weekly mini-fasts to reduce our ecological footprint and reflect on our relationship with God and all of creation.
