Earth Week 2023 – Together for the Love of Creation
We invite all faith communities to be part of the movement and join with faith communities across the country in Earth Week 2023 – Together for the Love of Creation. During the week of April 16 – 23, engage in a climate justice activity…praying, learning, acting. Coming together for the love of creation is a way to connect, grow, listen, inspire hope and affect change. Your activity could be visibly joining a community-wide event or creating something new. This is a chance to reach out to other faith communities and neighbours in your climate justice initiatives.

Part of the KAIROS and For the Love of Creation (FLC) Delegation, they will be reporting from Egypt, November 8-18, and advocating for a seat at decision-making tables to tackle the climate crisis.
CANDLES FOR COP27: VIGILS FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE
The experiences were different, from four people on a bridge braving a minus-twenty-degree windchill to a large circle of people gathered on the autumn leaves with robust drumming, but the sentiments are remarkably similar.
It all starts with a sense of urgency and gravity. Musicians led the Brandon group in singing:
We’re on a planet
that has a problem.
We’ve got to solve it, get involved and do it
now, now, now!
We need to build a better future, and we need to start right now!
