Pray - Study - Act on the Path to Paris #COP21
November is a historic month for taking action on climate change. Nearly 200 nations will join the UN Climate Summit in Paris, starting November 30. We need them to take bold action and solve the current climate crisis.
To help you join the millions of people worldwide praying and acting for the care for the earth, the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns will offer a weekly series, Path to Paris.
Each week, a two-page prayer-study-action guide will examine the devastating impacts of climate change and what we can do, leading up to the UN Climate Summit in Paris.

The first issue of Path to Paris examines the impact of rising sea levels, especially on the people of Bangladesh. It also offers ideas for making a personal commitment to lifestyle changes, for taking action locally and globally, and for prayer.
We offer Path to Paris in response to Pope Francis’ call: “Our goal is not to amass information or to satisfy curiosity, but rather to become painfully aware, to dare to turn what is happening to the world into our own personal suffering and thus to discover what each of us can do about it.” (Laudato Si' 19)
