Invitation to Participate in 'Mercy2Earth' weekend

22-23 April this year is Mercy2Earth weekend. That name, an initiative of the Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM), comes from Saturday being known since 1970 as Earth Day and Sunday this year being Divine Mercy Sunday.

As part of our Mercy global response to the 'cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor', Mercy International Association (MIA) has created resources for use on this weekend and beyond. In using the term 'Mercy to Earth' and in working with the existing MIA logo, MIA is highlighting in a particular way our response to the invitation of Pope Francis: 'May the works of mercy also include care for our common home'.

Further information and posters can be accessed on the Mercy International Association website
