Earth Day Clean Up at Sacred Heart Parish, Oakland, CA May 1st, 2023
Sacred Heart Parish Joined the local Pax Christi & neighboring parishes for an Earth Day clean up
By Fr. Jack Lau, OMI
Earth Day weekend the GreenTeam at SacredHeart had a full day. About 18 people from the parish, Pax Christi and neighboring parishes joined together and picked up over 600 gallons of trash and 150 gallons of compostables.
We afterwards celebrated an Earth Day mass with the parish and visitors. At 6pm we went to the hall for a sustainable vegetarian meal. Seconds and thirds were had. And to complete the day we saw the Papal movie “The Letter”.
A full day for sure and we left full, tired and with deep questions to ponder.
