St. Louis Sisters Collaborate for Earth Day

Sisters of St Joseph of Carondelet | Earth Day

High school students from the sisters sponsored institutions helped share the message at the Earth Day booth.

Fourteen congregations of Sisters in the St. Louis area collaborated to sponsor a booth at the 24th Annual Celebration of Earth Day in St. Louis in Forest Park!

The festival  took place on the Muny grounds in Forest Park on Sunday, April 21, offering guests the opportunity to learn about sustainable products and services provided by local businesses and organizations, as well as provided hands-on educational activities, entertainment, and cuisine featuring local, organic and vegetarian foods.

The theme for the booth was “Trading Places around the World”; guests were encouraged to put themselves into the place of another person and imagine walking in that person’s shoes for a day. Sisters shared stories of  five people around the world whose lives have been affected by environmental concerns and how the sisters help to better their lives.

Watch a short video to learn more about the booth.
