With the aim of ensuring that environmental sustainability is an integral part of our planning, decision making and practices within the Congregation, we hosted our sustainable living workshops. The Congregational Family in Mexico met in Casa San Angel (Mexico City), in the center of formation M. Teresa of Calcutta (Guadalajara) and Hospital Christus Muguerza (Monterrey).
We thank Sr Ana Luisa Prieto, Sr. Covadonga Suarez, Sr María Márquez and CCVI Associate Agustín Ríos, members of the International Committee of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation for co-organizing these events, which no doubt help to reinforce lifestyle changes, to be more respectful of life on Earth, and to have greater support to resist the culture of consumerism. The workshops offered development models that respect the rights of all earth’s inhabitants.
We would also like to thank every participating sister, associate, and collaborator from the CCVI schools. Your presence enriches us and always, always pushes us to give more and do better.
