“The ecological crisis is also a summons to profound interior conversion…Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.” (Laudato Si’ 217)
Saturday 25th of March at 8.30pm, millions of people across the globe will unite to show they care about the future of our planet, by switching off lights for one hour. It is one of the world’s biggest Environmental actions for Nature, Creation and Climate across the world.
Earth Hour 2023 is a special global event. It is held annually to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our planet. The event is a timely reminder of the need to take action on climate change. This annual event encourages people, parishes, communities, and businesses to ‘turn off’ non-essential electric lights, for one hour, from 8.30 to 9.30 p.m as a symbol of commitment to the planet – and to help create a better world for the future.
Earth hour is the moment when local and global communities unite by switching off lights to show they care about the future of our planet – our one shared home.
The point of Earth Hour is not just to save energy for one hour; it’s also a symbolic global event that shows we can all make a difference in the fight against climate change. If we all work together, even small changes can make a big difference!
Take time out to reflect on what nature means to you by joining Earth Hour 2023.
Earth hour is a time to ‘switch off’ from distractions & to focus on our World – Please join in
