Join with the members of the Green Church Program, as the church folk we are, to commemorate Earth Day on April 22nd. To show our solidarity with those who care for Creation, here are two ways of getting involved:

 

1. Ring the bells of the church for two minutes at 2pm to sound the alarm of the urgency of the ecological crisis, as advocated by artists like Margie Gillis and Gilles Vigneault.

2. Participate in a walkor gathering in your region.  Come with your Green Church posters, your cross around your neck and your smile to light the way. You could also take a picture of your congrergation outside the church to show the support of the whole Church community during Earth Day.
