Earth Week Invitation to Pray, Learn, Act

April 21-28 is Earth Week 2024! For the Love of Creation has invited us to join a nation-wide movement through local actions across the country to pray, learn, and act. (Read full invitation here: Earth Week 2024 Invitation 

In 2023, MC Canada formally endorsed For the Love of Creation – a Canadian, interfaith initiative to support faith communities taking action for climate justice.   

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.” 

“Change takes all of us. Each action brings hope. 
Let’s make hope visible across the country.”  
                                          - For the Love of Creation 

Some ideas to get you started… 

  • Pray: Include special prayers in your worship services. Hold a prayer service in creation. 
  • Learn: Hold an open house to share the greening efforts on your property. Host a Faithful Climate Conversation. Invite a speaker (e.g. a youth or Indigenous COP delegate, or a local Indigenous land or water protector) 
  • Act: Meet with elected officials about climate policy. Organize a collective carbon footprint audit. Participate in Indigenous-led land-based activity 

Let’s get MC Canada on the map!
