“PROTECT OUR EARTH, PROTECT OUR CHILDREN” CAMPAIGN
An urgent nationwide Catholic campaign to protect all life on Earth
Year 1: Use Less Electricity
The Catholic Bishops of Malaysia have approved the launch of this campaign by the Creation Justice Commission in all dioceses for 5 years from 1 Sept 2020 to 31 Aug 2025. Each year will have a different theme. The theme for Year 1 (1 Sept 2020 – 31 Aug 2021) is “Use Less Electricity”. Electricity comes from the burning of fossil fuel (coal, gas and oil). It contributes greatly to greenhouse gases which cause global warming. All parishes and parishioners are earnestly called to use less electricity, switch to renewable energy (e.g. solar), and pray daily for creation. “Choose life that you and your children may live” Deut 30:19.
Launching mass will be held on 31 Aug 2020 (Mon), 9.00 am at Sacred Heart Cathedral. Limited seats are available, please kindly register with Philip Kong, contact 016-8713627.
