As the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word we committed to a CORPORATE ACTION for the earth in September 2016. This action challenged us to make sure that at least 50% of all materials used and consumed in our meetings and events are environmentally friendly.  From then up to the present we have tried to promote local initiatives, strengthen what is already being done through our various networks and ministry partners, and also share what our ministries are doing through the monthly article 'Living Laudato Si' found in Seeds. 

This work can be challenging because changing our habits and common practices requires more time and intentionality.  Many have captured the spirit of creativity in working towards sustainable events, but we all still have a long way to go to be better stewards of our common home. 

For this reason, we believe offering a free Virtual Conference (webinar) for our sisters and collaborators regarding 'Sustainable Events' will help us to continue learning and improving.

To participate in the webinar on sustainable events you need to register to receive the link. Please send your full name and ministry/position within the Congregation to our e-mail:

Upon receiving your registration information, we will send you a confirmation email and the link so you can connect from your computer or other electronic device (it is important to have a computer or laptop with sound).

We hope you will also help us share this information and invite anyone who works with our Congregation and assists with meeting/event logistics in any way through the various institutions, organizations, departments, and groups.  Thank you!
