Dear Creation Care Ministry team members & supporters:
This is a friendly reminder that we are meeting tonight, Apr. 20, 2023:
Where: Rm.#119 (Parish Center).
Time: 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Tonight, we will finalize our plans for Earth Day 2023, :). We are ready to celebrate Earth Day 2023; it’s happening this coming Saturday (Saturday, Apr. 22, 2023)!
Together with a group of young people from our parish, we will participate in the county-wide Cleanup event: “Creek to Bay: Your Neighborhood/ Our Environment.”
If you would also like to volunteer for the cleanup, a few sites in North County are still in need of volunteers. Go to the following link and follow the prompts to register:
Note: If you choose to sign up for the county-wide cleanup (see link above), make sure that you volunteer at a site where the terrain is OK for you to get around, and that you will have ready access to restrooms and/or other accommodations that you require.
You can also celebrate Earth Day 2023 by following any of the activities suggested by Catholic Climate Covenant (click on the link): https://tinyurl.com/yc5ehc9w
Lastly, we invite you to watch the following video to practice “Simple Living” by caring for creation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWcc0vvsc-o
Happy (early) Earth Day 2023!
Be reminded that you are part of God’s marvelous creation, :).
If you are unable to be present at our meeting tonight but would like to offer us any feedback, please contact us. Thank You!
