Worth Pro-Earth

In his Message for the 53rd World Day of Peace Pope Francis asked us to celebrate the Day as part of a journey of hope and ​ecological conversion​. He called us to contemplate that God has given us the gift of the world as our common home. We need radical inner conversion to halt and redress our often abusive exploitation of this common residence and its natural resources.

Worth Pro Earth is a group within  Worth Abbey Parish. Its members try to enact the vision of Pope Francis, in his encyclical Laudato Si’, of widespread ecological conversion and care for God’s Creation. We are not the only species to call Earth “Home”. The other animal and plant species need us to care responsibly for our common home for their sake, for God’s plan and for our own long-term survival. If you would like to be involved in the Group, please contact Alan Rew at cdsploermel@gmail.com
