Sister Durstyne Farnan, OP

November 21, 2022, Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt – Adrian Dominican Sister Durstyne Farnan, OP, Dominican Representative to the United Nations, was among many faith leaders present at the UN Conference on Climate Change, COP27, to express disappointment at the slow speed of negotiations to address global climate change. 

In particular, Sister Durstyne was disappointed in the failure of wealthy developed nations such as the United States to establish climate mitigation funds to help less developed nations – which have suffered more of the consequences of climate change.

Merry Christmas and Peace among all people of Faith.
United we stand, divided we fall. God is an everlasting ALL LOVING God who is re- creating this World if HIS as He sees fit every single day. He asks us to be patient in all corners of the World. He is the EVERLASTING WORLD LEADER & we are still Children in His Sight.

Wonderful that you have given over 40 years of service as a Catholic Adrian Dominican Sister!!! Congratulations
