FABULOUS EVENTS IN DECEMBER! VIGIL, FILM, FORUM

Sunday December 1 – International Fast & Vigil for the Climate

ClimateFast began in 2012 with fasting as one of our practices; we haven’t been doing this regularly in recent years – but invite you to consider fasting for the climate this December 1st. Or, join us for a vigil. We want to reflect on the importance of this moment, right before COP25 in Madrid, and in response to the reports this week on how urgent action is to prevent runaway global heating of up to 4 degrees by 2100.

Join us at Friends House 60 Lowther Ave. from 4 – 5:30 pm on Dec 1.

RSVP to lyn@climatefast.ca or just come.
