In March this year the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta held a gathering in our grounds to 'sound the alarm' about the urgent need for action on climate change.

Now, on October 17 people of faith all over the world are gathering again for a massive global multi-religious action prior to the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow in November. The symbolic action will be to unfurl banners with messages to governments and major financial institutions, and individuals: destroying the planet is against our religions.

The term "COP" stands for the "Conference Of the Parties", an annual meeting on climate change organized by the United Nations and attended by delegations from most countries around the world.   COP26 is so important that Pope Francis himself has committed to attending the climate summit in person.

Due to the restrictions of lockdown we can’t meet physically on the 17th. However we have a banner to display from the building and will hold a virtual gathering to join the global actions. Hope you can join us.
Stay tuned for further information
