Last week we shared with you Issue 1 of Path to Paris, our weekly prayer-study-action guide on climate change as experienced by Maryknoll missioners, and what you can do to help.

We're now another week closer to the historic UN Climate Summit in Paris, starting November 30, where nearly 200 nations will gather to solve the climate crisis.


To help you join the millions of people worldwide praying and acting for the care for the earth, the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns now offers Issue 2 of Path to Paris.

The second issue of Path to Paris examines the impact of extreme weather, especially on the people of the Philippines. It also offers ideas for making a personal commitment to lifestyle changes, for taking action, and for meditation.


We offer Path to Paris in response to Pope Francis’ call: “Our goal is not to amass information or to satisfy curiosity, but rather to become painfully aware, to dare to turn what is happening to the world into our own personal suffering and thus to discover what each of us can do about it.” (Laudato Si' 19)
