Earth Hour Vespers at St. Basil’s

  • March 25, 2008

{mosimage}TORONTO — Catholics who wish to express their love of the Earth liturgically will have a chance March 29 when St. Basil’s Church in Toronto holds an “Earth Hour” Vespers.

The idea for Earth Hour came from Sydney, Australia. The first one was held last year when the city’s residents were asked to turn out their lights for an hour to save energy and draw attention to global warming. Since then it has become a global phenomenon.

St. Basil’s Church, at Bay and St. Joseph Streets, will mark the occasion with a candlelight Vespers, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. The prayers and readings for the service will focus on creation and the Christian responsibility to be good stewards.

All are welcome. For more information contact the parish office at (416) 926-7110.
