Communique #03 – Education and Health
National Chairperson of Education and Health Faith Anderson, February 19, 2019
The national theme Care for our Common Home indeed speaks to this standing committee. The Constitution & Bylaws lists wellness and sickness/disease, environment and genetics as areas to address. When members are not well, then care for the environment or concern and awareness of genetics issues becomes limited.
In support of the national theme and the 2019 focus on water, please encourage parish councils to study part II The Issue of Water (Section 27-31) of Pope Francis’ encyclical letter Laudato Si’.
