Restore Our Earth
The theme of Earth Day (Thursday April 22nd) this year is Restore Our Earth.
The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have painfully reminded us about the impacts of human behaviour that break down natural systems and threaten the lives of so many species, including humans.
Restore Our Earth reminds us of the opportunity we have to restore relationships, to reconnect with Creation, and learn to live in right relationship with people and the earth.
According to earthday.org, “We must Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. Every one of us needs a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity.”

Earth Day 2021 also marks the first anniversary of For the Love of Creation.
Since April 2020, this faith-based collaboration for climate justice has grown from an idea to a network that has engaged the hearts and minds of over 2500 Canadians, reached into the House of Commons, across border and time zones, and across faith traditions.
For the Love of Creation is currently building momentum for climate action in Canada through its Faith-in-Action campaign. Join the campaign!
For the Love of Creation will host two events during Earth Week and several others are planned by ecumenical partners. We hope you will join us in marking this week by spending time together in community online and finding ways to connect with Creation.

Restoration of our organ
Suzie Charpentier and Jens Peterson, both involved in the restoration of our parish organ, give us an inside look at the progress Casavant is making.
Food Bank Donation
We have a new tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a more continuous basis. Over 860,000 Canadians visit food banks every month, with over 36% of the donations feeding hungry children.
During the COVID‑19 isolation, please leave your items in a bag at the door of the rectory. Donations will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s parish food bank.
