Inspired by the words of Pope Francis in Laudato Si, Balally Parish joins with Trócaire and with parishes worldwide in promoting this climate petition demanding that our leaders take urgent action to prevent climate change pushing people deeper into poverty. Along with conflict, climate change is another reason why people are and will continue to leave their homes as their livelihoods are lost due to unpredictable weather patterns. You are invited to sign the petition sheets which will be available in the church for the next six weeks or so. Trócaire will gather the petitions from parishes nationwide and hand them over to our political leaders before they represent us at December’s climate summit in Paris.
