Newark, N.J. – Days after the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) came to a close on November 18, the Archdiocese of Newark’s Environmental Justice Task Force has released its own plan to guide parishioners on how they can help the planet.
“Laudato Si’ — On the Care of Our Common Home: Actions for the Archdiocese of Newark” is a localized version of Pope Francis’ own “Laudato Si’” environmental encyclical, which states that caring for Earth is a Christian duty. To help local Catholics fulfill this obligation, the document presents seven goals for reversing climate change and environmental degradation. Each goal comes with a menu of corresponding actions that individuals, families, parishes, and organizations are encouraged to pursue in their communities. For instance, to achieve Goal 1: Response to the Cry of the Earth, people can install solar panels, compost, fix a leaky faucet, or pursue 13 other options.
The full list of goals and actions can be read at https://www.rcan.org/environmental-justice-task-force.
“We are very excited to see how parishes and parishioners of the Archdiocese will implement the ‘Laudato Si’’ action plan,” said Father Timothy Graff, director of the archdiocesan Social Concerns Office, which oversees the Environmental Justice Task Force. “It allows all of us to respond to our Holy Father’s call to care for our common home.”
Because the Environmental Justice Task Force recognized that manpower and finances vary among individuals and organizations, it categorized each recommended action in the plan as “easy,” “moderate,” or “advanced” so everyone can effortlessly identify which options are within their means. Additionally, the plan includes links to resources and organizations that can provide assistance.
“Climate change is real. Resources are finite. Droughts, wildfires, and floods all exact a price on us,” said Gerry Dalzell, vice president of the archdiocesan Environmental Justice Task Force.

Not their job.
If this dreck comes to the Methodist Church, I’m quitting.
Hey padre, stay in your lane.
I assume this means walking or bicycling - no cars, buses, planes, trains or boats. No more AC or heaters in church. All clergy and nuns to become vegetarian.
I mean, put up or shut up, right?
Piss on those sanctimonious, lying scumbags
St. Augustine’s amillenial doctrine is responsible for the Catholic and many Protestant churches “kingdom now” efforts. Bringing in the “kingdom” means working for social and climate “justice”
A Biblical dispensational view demonstrates that these these activities are a waste of time.
To the Archdiocese of Newark...
You cannot serve God and Mammon...
Step One: Depopulate
A young couple just got married but didn’t know much about sex. The bride had a little knowledge on the subject so in the honeymoon suite the groom asked her what to do. She said “well to start, kiss me where it smells.” So he took her to New Jersey.
Leftists have taken over the Catholic church.
