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.
