              EARTH DAY 2011




The seventh commandment enjoins respect for the integrity of creation. Animals,
plants and inanimate beings, are by nature destined for the common good of past,
 present and future humanity. Man's dominion over inanimate and other living
  beings granted by the Creator is not absolute; it is limited by concern for the
    quality of life of his neighbor, including generations to come; it requires a
             religious respect for the integrity of creation. (No. 2415)
 THIS YEAR EARTH DAY WILL FALLS ON GOOD FRIDAY, OUR PARISH
            WILL CELEBRATE EARTH DAY ON PALM SUNDAY.
