From Viatorian News
For the second straight year, Saint Viator High School served as the host site for mobilizing teens around an issue they feel strongly about: climate change. Young people came out of a concern for the environment, but as Catholic high school students they felt a call to respond to Laudato si’: On Care for Our Common Home, the encyclical published in 2015 by Pope Francis.
“As a Campus Minister, climate change was the number one issue I heard about from students over these last three years,” says Wilhite, who graduated from Saint Viator in 2015 and worked in Campus Ministry from 2019-2022. “It’s awesome to be building this platform with youth, for youth, so we as a community can learn about the biggest climate problems and take concrete action to address them.”
