Become aware of the story of our Sister Elizabeth Riebschlaeger, CCVI, who is an untiring activist working day by day for the care and conservation of creation.
Sr. Elizabeth shares in this interview with NBC about her work to protect the environment by raising awareness about the destructive nature of fracking through tours of the Eagle Ford Shale area in Texas.
“Among those faithful whose care for the environment predates the pope’s landmark encyclical on the subject, which was released in June, is Texas nun Sister Elizabeth Riebschlaeger. The 79-year-old member of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word gives tours of oil and gas industry fracking activities in south Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale region, warning of potential impacts on the health of the local people and their land.”
