Archives Climate Ambassador to speak in Plattsburgh

Feb. 8, 2017

Plattsburgh  Dr. Gerry Gacioch, chief of cardiology at Rochester General Hospital’s Heart Institute who is also one of the nation’s 17 Catholic Climate Ambassadors trained by the Catholic Climate Covenant, is slated to offer an hour-long public presentation April 2 at 1 PM in the Emmaus Room at St. Peter’s Church

The Climate Ambassador’s hour-long regional presentation will focus on;
• Catholic teachings associated with climate change and environmental stewardship for year 2017 – especially associated with Laudato Si: On Care of Our Common Home, the encyclical from Pope Francis; and

• What people can be doing as individuals and doing together.

The regional presentation is co-sponsored by the Diocese of Ogdensburg and the St. Peter’s Church Environmental Stewardship Ministry.

The Catholic Climate Covenant is an outgrowth of the Catholic Coalition on Climate Change, which was established in year 2006 by the collective efforts of a dozen national Catholic organizations, such as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, plus the National Religious Partnership for the Environment.

Ambassador Dr. Gacioch is an experienced speaker and has extensive background on the moral implications of climate change consistent with Catholic teachings outlined by Pope Francis Laudato Si – Care for Our Common Home.

There is no admission fee for presentation, although individuals interested in attending are encouraged to telephone the St. Peter’s Church Rectory at 518-563-1692 well in advance of the presentation, to reserve a seat.
