Be Part of History Be Part of the Witness for Climate Justice Event

On Friday December 11, 2015 an action in support of a positive outcome at COP21 will take place at Christ Church Cathedral located on St. Catherine Street in downtown Montreal (click here for directions).

A service will be held inside of the church at 5:15 PM. It will be followed by a candlelight climate witness on the forecourt of the church. All are welcome.

Here are the French and English versions of the prayer for this occasion:

Dieu de miséricorde, Créateur de l'Univers, La beauté qui nous entoure élève nos cœurs en louanges de reconnaissance. Faites que nous apprenions à respecter ce don sacré et que nous nous efforcions de réparer le dommage infligé par notre consommation à outrance, notre cupidité, notre négligence. Accordez-nous une conversion écologique afin que nous léguions à la prochaine génération un avenir plein d'espérance et d'abondances pour tous.


Gracious God, Creator of All, We raise our hearts in grateful praise for all the beauty that surrounds us. May we learn to respect all as a sacred gift and do what we can to repair the damage we have caused through our consumerism, greed and carelessness. Grant us an ecological conversion so that we can leave our next generation with a future full of hope where there is enough for all.
