Montreal’s 6th Annual Interfaith EcoAction Day

Volunteers plan to put their faith into action in Park Extension

The Christian-Jewish Dialogue of Montreal will hold their 6th Annual Interfaith EcoAction Day on May 23, 2016.  Volunteers from various faith traditions will gather in Park Extension to green and clean the neighbourhood.

Eco Action Day

Organizer Catherine Jarvis said, “We want to show the power of faith in our community to make a positive difference. Volunteers who work together come to know that although faith traditions may vary, we have much in common including the desire to live in healthy and safe communities.” This event is organized in collaboration with the Christian Jewish Dialogue of Montreal, Concordia Multi-faith Chaplaincy, Canadian Centre for Ecumenism, Green Churches Network, TEVA Quebec, Purple Hope Project, Al-Madinah Centre, the Borough of Villeray St-Michel Parc-Extension, and Eco-quartier Parc-Extension.

These EcoAction Events have been organized within local Montreal neighborhoods annually for the past five years as a practical expression of faith in action. People of different faiths come together to make a difference in the community and to express the common belief that we are all entrusted with the care of the Earth. Student volunteers, along with Jewish, Christian, Sikh, and Muslim community members, work together for common good and in support of common values.   Past events have been held in Cote-des-Neiges, Notre-Dame-de Grace, Shaughnessy Village, St Henri, and Maisonneuve-Rosemont.

All are welcome.
