In the latest Justice & Peace alert from the Conference of Major Superiors of Men, its leaders highlight the need to advocate for environmental stewardship. This video features Fr. Neil Pezzulo, of the Glenmary Home Missioners, who works in the Appalachian region of the United States where the battle lines over energy, jobs, and environmental justice intersect.

In this video he briefly discusses his observations of the current environmental conversation in Appalachia, describes some of the work he has been doing in the region, and why our faith impels us to act on the issue of environmental stewardship.

Working to protect the environment is one more way members of CMSM — including the Viatorians — carry out their mission of justice and peace.
