Mercy2Earth Offering of Letters
In September, 2016 Pope Francis declared that caring for creation is both a spiritual and corporal work of mercy. The weekend of April 22 and 23 combines Earth Day and Divine Mercy Sunday.
On this “Mercy2Earth” weekend, the Creation Care Ministry invites people to take action to show mercy to the Earth by signing letters to our congressional representatives asking them to support environmental protections. There will be sample letters available after each Mass to sign or parishioners are invited to compose their own letters. The letters will be collected through April 30 and delivered to the local offices of our representatives in early May. Sample letters and guidelines for the Mercy2Earth letters will be available on the STA website.
