Earth Day at The Priory

Sunday, April 22, 1 PM – 3 PM Open to the public. By donation.

April 22, 2018 marks the 48th anniversary of Earth Day, a secular celebration that many faith communities have incorporated into their annual calendars for awareness and action. The Priory Retreat House, a member of the Catholic Climate Covenant is joining the Earth Day Network‘s campaign to End Plastic Pollution (www.earthday.org/campaigns/plasticscampaign). From contributing to land and marine pollution to increasing our use of carbon-producing fuels, our reliance on single-use plastics has a devastating impact on God’s creation. The good news is that we can solve this problem. We can all play a role in reducing plastic pollution and minimizing our contribution to what Pope Francis calls “a throwaway culture” by working together as a community. This one-hour program, focuses on how we contribute, both individually and collectively, to the growing problem of single-use plastic. By the end of the hour, we hope you and your community will commit to using less disposable plastic and to participating in a months-long challenge to reduce single-use plastic.

Come and help raise awareness of our need to care for the Earth and help people take real action. You are making a difference. On behalf of creation and vulnerable peoples throughout the world, we thank you!
