The Diocese of Monterey and Green Power will host a training event on July 17th, 2016 at Resurrection Church in Aptos called “Caring for Our Sacred Earth”. The event will launch the Monterey Diocese climate campaign and teach parishioners how to form green power teams. The event will be opened by Monterey Diocese Bishop Richard Garcia and keynoted by Dr. Katie Hirschboeck of the University of Arizona—an official climate change ambassador for the Catholic Church. Also presenting will be Green Power/Romero Institute executive director Sara Nelson and Virginia Johnson, project leader of Monterey Bay Community Power.

Green Power, a project of the Romero Institute, is partnering with the Monterey Catholic Diocese to green parishes and advocate for renewable energy policy. The Romero Institute is a faith-based law and policy center in Santa Cruz. The joint campaign will promote energy efficient churches and explore rooftop solar for Catholic buildings. Green Power will also educate Catholic parishes about Community Choice Energy (CCE), a new way counties and cities in California can control their electricity supply.
