Celebrating Earth Day
Wednesday, April 22, was Earth Day! The first Earth Day in 1970 activated 20 million people in the United States and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Earth Day is now the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities.
Save the Date!
The next Year of Consecrated Life activities will take place on Saturday, June 13 and Friday, June 19. The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati will be partnering with Price Hill organizations to host service opportunities for individuals of all ages.
