The SSJ Earth Center set up shop at this year's Abbey Fest in Paoli, Pennsylvania. The annual festival is considered to be one of the largest Catholic celebrations of faith, family and praise in the United States. The event is held outdoors on the beautiful grounds of Daylesford Abbey.
Approximately 4,000 people participated this year and over 50 religious vendors displayed their wares. Liturgy was held at 4:00 PM, followed by a concert, which continued until 9:30 PM. The SSJ Earth Center provided an opportunity for people to sign the Catholic Climate Covenant and the St. Francis Pledge. A total of 170 people signed the pledge and many took literature about the Catholic Climate Covenant.
The SSJ Earth Center table staff included Sisters Joyce Ballerino SSJ and Mary Elizabeth Clark SSJ, John and Terry Trudeau, Mary and Luke LeTourneau and family and Associate Maryanne Williams.
