Archdiocese of Atlanta renews green efforts to combat climate change
In 2015, Pope Francis called for all Catholic Churches to do more to address climate change and live more sustainable lives in his Encyclical “Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home.”

On Wednesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Kat Doyle with the office of Life, Dignity, and Justice at Archdiocese of Atlanta, talked with program host Rose Scott about the “Refresh” campaign and how the Archdiocese of Atlanta plans to continue addressing climate change.
