Workshop: Care for our Common Home Good Shepherd Parish becoming Environmentally Responsible Disciples

Sunday 24 November: 11:45am to 1:45pm.    St. Agnes Church Auditorium (Pizza Lunch provided)

Four years ago, Pope Francis published an encyclical, Laudato Si: Care for Our Common Home.

“The decline of our precious home through a changing climate, shrinking forests, and a careless neglect of God’s creation threatens all life on earth. All life on earth.”

All parishioners (including youth Grade 7 and above) are invited to a short workshop to discuss how we at Good Shepherd Parish can turn the messages from Pope Francis into an Action Plan. Options might include:

·      Greening our parish: energy efficiency, community garden, tree planting etc.

·      Support to our brothers & sisters adversely impacted by environmental degradation

·      Opportunity to share ideas and initiatives
