Be Ready for London's Earth Day Interfaith Festival in 2013

McCormick/Carling Heights Park, 39 Connaught Avenue, is part of the pedestrian/cycling corridor stretching east and west in London, Ontario. This secondary corridor connects parks along the Canadian Pacific Rail line. On Sunday, April 28, 2-5 pm a number of faith organizations will gather at McCormick Park to participate in activities which demonstrate their care for creation. According to Reforest London contact Julie Ryan the participants include: Al Mehdi Islamic Centre, Baha'i, Colborne Street United, Diocese of Huron, First St. Andrew's United, Good Shepard Lutheran Church, Greening Sacred Spaces, Lutheran Social Services, Muslim Association of Canada, Or Shalom, Richards Memorial United Church, St. James Westminster Anglican Church, St. Luke the Evangelist - Broughdale, St. Peters Cathedral, St. Vincent de Paul - St. John the Divine Conference, St.George's Anglican Church, Temple Israel Synagogue, Trinity Lutheran Church, and Trinity United Church Community Center. Activities planned or hoped for will include Tree planting, food sharing, displays and activities by each faith group to teach others about their faith's beliefs on stewardship of the earth; group children's activity and a  park clean-up. There will possibly be trees for each group to bring home to their religious grounds to plant. Events like this indicate how people understand that there is a common link through the heritage given to humanity by the stewardship of creation. 

RSVP by March 21, 2013 to be part of the Interfaith Event at McCormick Park.
