Defending a Healthy Planet: Franciscans at the UN Climate Conference

The COP26 was Glasgow will be a pivotal moment for the preservation of our common home and Franciscans are present to demand strong and urgent action. In a briefing directly from the parish of the Friars Minor in Glasgow, we explain how Franciscans around the world are coming together for climate justice and what those not present can do to support this work.
