Sacredness of Water

Theology & Environmental Justice on the Gulf Coast: 

This event will be a theological foundation of faith leaders addressing the sacredness of water especially as it relates to Louisiana.

We will bring together a diverse group of leaders of faith-based organizations and faith leaders to examine our physical, spiritual, cultural and socioeconomic dependence on this life-sustaining resource.

Participants will explore emerging threats to water, useful sources of information, and ethical actions that we may take to protect this most profoundly sacred gift.

 

Facilitators include:


- Father Dan Krutz, Executive Director of the LIC,


- Rob Gorman, Retired Executive Director of the Catholic Social Services

.
- Rev. Dr. Kristina Peterson, Chair of the Environmental Stewardship Commission of the Louisiana Interchurch Conference

The panel will include:
- Avery Lamb and Karyn Bigelow, Co-Directors of the Creation Justice Ministries
Sharon Lavigne, Goldman Environmental Awardee and environmental caregiver


Rev. Gregory Manning of the Greater New Orleans Interfaith Climate Coalition

Cindy Robertson with Episcopal Disaster and the Micah 6:8 project.

The webinar will conclude with a closing prayer delivered by the Rev. Dr. Tolbert, former President of the LIC.

Elder Rosina Philippe, Atakapa-Ishak/Chawasha Tribe will bless our gathering and sacredness of place.

Information on the Week of Prayer

 

Due to COVID-19 many events are cancelled or are being held virtually.

Alexandria 

There is usually a Week of Prayer event coordinated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Alexandria or the Episcopal Diocese of West Louisiana. With COVID-19 difficulties, we are waiting to hear news of this. 

 

 

 

New Orleans

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans also generally is one of the annual event organizers for their area.  Again, we are waiting to hear of news of any virtual meeting/s.
