Religious to release document about work for clean energy

Three religious communities in Kentucky’s “Holy Land” —  Sisters of Loretto, the Dominican Sisters of Peace and the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth — have coauthored an Energy Vision Statement that articulates the religious beliefs behind their work for clean energy solutions.

The statement will be released at an interfaith prayer service at the Boone family farm in Nelson County, Ky., Dec. 10. Leaders from numerous faith traditions including Sister Susan Gatz, president of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth; Susan Classen, a Loretto Community member; and Dominican Sister of Peace Claire McGowan; participated in the service.

These three religious communities have joined Kentucky landowners in a campaign to stop construction of the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline.

To date, the statement has been signed by more than 60 faith communities and almost 500 individuals.
