“Give it up for the Earth” Campaign for Lent

This Lent, February 14th to March 29th, Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) invites our participation in their faith-in-action campaign to increase climate justice in Canada. “Give it up for the earth”, a postcard campaign, includes a pledge to individual climate action and a call for the Government of Canada to immediately end all subsides to the fossil fuel sector. Completed postcards returned to CPJ will be delivered to Minister Catherine McKenna at the conclusion of the campaign. Although the postcards include postage, if you add a stamp it will help CPJ offset the cost of all the free materials they send to groups like ours. This Lent let’s Give it up for the earth! Don’t forget to take a picture of your group with your individual pledges and post-cards for the newsletter.

Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys School – Kingston, ON

As January 12 was a “snow day” Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys Elementary School in Kingston celebrated their patron saint on January 26. The celebration prepared by one of the teachers who is preparing to become a Congregation de Notre-Dame associate was composed of a time of prayer, a presentation of Sakura no Seibo Elementary school in Japan given by Sister Marijke Gerretsen and the singing of “St. Marguerite, We Love You” which Sister Eleanor Monahan composed some years ago. I was very impressed and delighted to see the enthusiasm as the whole student body from kindergarten to grade eight sang the chorus,

“Saint Marguerite we love you, our sister and our friend.

Protect our families, bless our school. Be with us to the end.”
