A Transition Year RE class has been working on a project relating to climate change over the last two months. It is called ‘Make your Mark for Climate Justice’. It is inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si in which he called on all humans to play an active part in caring for the planet. The project is based on a campaign run by SMA Wilton Justice and Peace office, which involved people making a pledge to make a difference in their everyday life, for example, by turning off the tap when cleaning teeth, unplugging phone chargers when not in use, and not leaving electrical equipment on standby. As a sign of their pledge, each person was invited to place their thumbprint on a specially prepared card that they could then bring home as a reminder. A small group of TY students from Millstreet Community School will be inviting parishioners in Millstreet on Saturday 12th March at 6.30pm Mass to do likewise.
