Litter Pilgrimage

July 21 @ 11:15 am - 1:30 pm

The St. Ignatius Environmental Justice Committee, Antiracism Task Force, and Young Adult Ministry are co-sponsoring a Litter Pilgrimage on 21 July at 11:15 AM, where we will walk a rectangular course of less than two miles in our neighborhoods. We will consider the temperatures in July, accessibility needs and people’s interest in a shorter route and will make every effort to  accommodate all participants.

Exercising the Jesuit mission of advocacy, education and action, while prayerfully collecting trash/litter as we go, we will reflect upon key elements of Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’, Franciscan and Ignatian spiritualities, and Catholic Social Teaching to become aware of our immediate environment (both ecological and social) and to discern how we are being called to act.

We will meet at the native garden on Calvert Street, in front of the Parish Offices, at 11:15 a.m.  Please bring gloves.  Grabbers and bags will be provided, but if you have either, please bring them.  All are welcome to light refreshments in St. Ignatius Rectory at the Pilgrimage’s conclusion. Please RSVP to Theresa, chair of the Environmental Justice Committee at tafurnari10@gmail.com if you will join us.  We hope to see you there!
