The congregation of the St. Paul’s Anglican Church came together to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the St. Paul’s Fiesta.
Twenty trees for 20 years of St. Paul’s Fiesta
As part of their St. Paul’s Fiesta celebrations, church members commemorated the 20th anniversary of the event by planting 20 trees at the National Botanical Gardens recently.
As one of the organisations which joined the nation for a tree planting exercise early this month at Hope Plantation, St. Lucy, the congregation of St. Paul’s Anglican Church conducted a similar event on Saturday, January 11.
The exercise was a part of the church’s mandate to preserve “its environment and (to) actively answer the call of being faithful stewards of God’s creation”.
The church believes that Christians can find purpose and joy in loving their neighbours. The institution also wanted to emphasise that Christians are charged by their creator to take good care of His creation. It was noted that the moral crisis of climate change is an opportunity for all of Christians to find purpose and joy in loving their neighbours and being good stewards to the Father’s creation.
With a team of 18 Church members, they planted the trees in the morning at the National Botanical Gardens. This year, the theme for St. Paul’s Fiesta is “Making Caring Our Calling 2020 & Beyond”. The launch of the event occurred on Sunday at St. Paul’s Anglican Church and
they will celebrating its Patronal Festival commencing January 19th and concluding January 26th. The week of activities will include a day of ‘Family, Fellowship, Fun & Ole Time Rally’ on the Bay Pasture from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
