The first resolution concerns the St. Francis Pledge. This is a pledge to pray, act and advocate for ecology and environment. Originating in the United States, the pledge has been adopted by many groups including the LCWR (Leadership Conference of Women Religious) and the CMSM (Conference of Major Superiors of Men).
The Administrative Council has adopted this to guide its own practices and the practices of our office in Montreal. Click here to read it. As well, we will be presenting it at the General Assembly for subsequent consideration by our members in their own communities.
