“We have to make
our occupations holy.
We do this by seeking
God in them.”

EarthConnection

EarthConnection, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, is a center for learning and reflection about living lightly on Earth. Aware of the interconnectedness of all of Creation, we seek to integrate spirituality and sustainability through programs in sustainable agriculture, alternative energies, ecojustice, and ecospirituality.

EarthConnection was built in 1991 to address the adverse ecological effects of our consumer society. It was founded by Sister Paula Gonzalez, SC, Ph.D., a biologist, nationally recognized lecturer, author and retreat leader.

The facility was made possible by many groups of volunteers who converted an oversized four-car garage into a 3,900-square-foot meeting and office space building. Features of the facility include an experimental solar heating system, solar electricity, natural lighting, super-insulated walls and windows, floor tiles made of waste glass, a wall made of aluminum cans, and carpeting constructed from recycled plastic bottles.

We offer Earth-related programs and events at our site or yours on the following topics and more:

  • Climate Change
  • Sustainability
  • Laudato Si’
  • Movies that Matter
  • Ecojustice
  • Alternative Energies
  • Eco-Art
  • Ecospirituality
  • Drum Circle
  • Gardening with Native Plants

Sharing Our Love of the Earth

The Laudato Si’ Action Platform invites us to become a community of participatory action and advocacy, for the Earth and the poor. Did you know that the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati have 14 people from other countries working at Mother Margaret Hall? In order to learn more about them, the countries they come from and how climate change is affecting their home countries, Sisters Jean Miller and Mary Ann Humbert are interviewing them. In this video we hear from Felicia, originally from Nigeria.
