This emerged from the recent meeting promoted by the Federation of Episcopal Conferences of Asia held in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. “Promoting renewable energy in every parish, Catholic community and institute in Asia and all over the world is a matter of discernment; it is a crucial choice,” says Father Charles Irudayam, Indian priest present at the meeting.
“The countries of Asia must move quickly from fossil fuels to clean energy, and the Catholic Church offers its contribution to this cultural and practical change,” says Fr. Irudayam.
