It’s Time for Earth Hour 2014

Remember the invitation to join EARTH HOUR in the last ‘just Mercy’?

EARTH HOUR is the single largest mass movement that helps the world look at climate change.  Millions of people will turn off their lights at 8.30pm (local timezone) for an hour this Saturday, March 29.

This initiative on action for climate change aims to reach more than one billion people in cities around the world, inviting communities, business and governments to switch off their lights as part of a global vote .

This is to raise awareness for our planet and this year particularly for the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world, now under threat as a dumping ground. There will be a special television event to mark this occasion. Go to for further information.

This invitation comes to you from the Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea, and this initiative comes to you from the online conversation group:
