Join the Global Earth Hour on Saturday, March 29, 8:30 - 9:30 pm.


Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organised by WWF. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.

The event is held worldwide towards the end of March annually, encouraging individuals, communities households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet. Earth Hour 2015 will take place on Saturday, 29 of March at 8:30PM to 9:30PM in your local timezone.


At the Good Shepherd Convent in Quezon City, the Sisters will gather at the Good Shepherd Chapel and pray before the Blessed Sacrament. The Good Shepherd Sisters promote the thrust of Women, Justice, Peaced and Integrity of Creation.

Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle called on the people to join the global event. He said:

 

Mga kapanalig ako po si Cardinal Chito Tagle ng Archdiocese of Manila. Inaanyayahan at hinihimok ko kayo na makilahok sa Earth Hour sa darating na Sabado ika-29 ng Marso. Mula 8:30 hanggang 9:30 ng gabi patayin po natin ang mga gamit nating de kuryente. Pagpahingahin natin ang kalikasan. Mag-ayuno tayo sa pagkonsumo nang tumagal pa ang yaman ng nilikha ng Dios. Ang wastong pamamahala ng kalikasan ay bahagi ng pagiging mabuting alagad ni Kristo. Sumainyo nawa ang katotohanan.
