Sr Sheila’s presentation concluded with a Statement of Commitment and a Call to Action by all congregations and institutes.

‘We commit ourselves to both personal and communal conversion and

We wish to move forward together in an orchestrated and coordinated response in

Listening to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor

As we go forth as instruments of hope

In the heart of the world.

As Pope Francis reminds us, “All of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation, each according to his or her own culture, experience, involvements and talents.” (LS14)’
