Parish Youth Group combat Climate Change by Planting Trees

On 26 January the Parish Youth Group met to discuss an initiative to combat climate change by planting trees –  in the spirit of Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si. We watched a video about Laudato Si which you can see: HERE , and another specifically about the difference that planting trees can make: HERE.

Later the young people themselves planted a ‘weeping birch’ tree in the monastery garden. Here are some of Fr Ed’s photos of the occasion:

We will plant four more trees behind a block of flats in Luxembourg City next Sunday afternoon – 9th February.
