Hope is near to us...
This article wants to introduce you to our small community: St. Martin and St. Pius X, two Catholic parishes in Chomedey, Laval.
Hope and the ecological dimension are both traditionally symbolized by the color green. Presenting them side by side in our community lies in the mission of our pastoral team, which has already been raising awareness since 2005, one small initiative at a time.
It started when we chose to synchronize our social ministry with the campaigns of Development and Peace. Then, a series of concrete actions followed: the installation of bicycle stands, selling the ecological calendar Ushuaia, new recycling bins. Subsequently, our thinking has led us to believe all of our ministry through the eye of ecological awareness in catechesis, or even how to promote organic farming through our practice of fair trade.
In connection with our accession to the Church Green, we will emphasize on Earth Day with an evening of Taizé chant.
May the Lord every day, help us convert to respecting life.
