Give it up for the Earth!

Annual climate justice campaign by Citizens for Public Justice runs from Feb. 26 to Apr. 9.  This is a faith-in-action campaign to encourage Canadian action for climate justice. Give it up for the Earth! raises awareness about climate change and mobilizes people across Canada to reduce household greenhouse gas emissions and collect signatures as a demonstration of support for increased federal government action.

Churches, schools, religious orders, and ecumenical groups across Canada are set to Give it up for the Earth! this Lent.  Will you pledge to give it up for the Earth?


Please check out our weekly bulletin (available here on our website under the Bulletins etc. tab) for events happening in our church and surrounding area. 

Lunch and Learn  On Sunday, Feb. 16, Joe Gunn, Director of Centre Oblat – A Voice for Justice, will join us. He will speak to us about the work of Centre Oblat and will focus more particularly on the recent Synod on the Amazon attended by Pope Francis and the bishops of the pan-Amazon region in October. We hope that you will come to what promises to be a very interesting presentation.
