As a response to Laudato si, we built a stable in St Bonaventure College by reusable materials with the help of Legion of Mary last Christmas.
We started to run the Green Auditing Scheme for St Bonaventure Parish and St Joseph Primary School.
We have strengthened our works in redistribution of various resources: excess SBOFM HK printed materials to secular Franciscan in China, excess papers as memo paper for St Bonaventure Parish and Legion of Mary, furniture after the exhibition to the parish, school and friary, a sample of jeans to our primary schools’ students.
We encouraged and helped parishioners of St Bonaventure Parish to response to the Land Debate launched by the Hong Kong Government with the help of social concern group.
We have 5 lectures on Franciscan JPIC from late September: St Francis of Assisi; Option for the Poor; Peacemaking; Integrity of Creation / Environmental Justice; Human Rights: Individual and Collective.
We co-organized the Season of Creation activities with the Justice and Peace Commission and other parish groups. The program started with a prayer meeting in the Cathedral, followed by a talk about animal protection, a prayer meeting in open area near the Central Government Offices, the animal blessing in 2 parishes, an ecological spiritual exercise in the countryside and a mass in nature celebrated by Bishop Joseph Ha.
