Celebrate Earth Day 22 April
12 April 2017 | General Interest
22-23 April this year is Mercy2Earth weekend. That name, an initiative of the Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM), comes from Saturday being known since 1970 as Earth Day.
As part of the Mercy global response to the 'cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor', MIA have created resources for use on this weekend and beyond. In using the term 'Mercy to Earth' and in working with the existing MIA logo, they are highlighting in a particular way the Mercy response to the invitation of Pope Francis: 'May the works of mercy also include care for our common home'.
