Every child has the power to achieve great things, yet without access to electricity, the world’s children are being held back from living life to the full. Renewable energy gives children the power to break free from poverty. By supporting our Power to Be campaign, you and your parish can change lives for good.
Here are four ways to launch Power to Be in your parish:
1. Sign cards in your community
Order campaign action cards for everyone in your parish and get people to sign and send them to Melanie Robinson, the UK’s representative at the World Bank, to ask her to support renewable energy to tackle poverty, so that everyone can fulfil their God-given potential.
St Joseph’s Penketh in the Liverpool Archdiocese managed to get a fantastic 253 postcards signed and sent to CAFOD. Could you do the same?
- Organise a Power to Be liturgy
Invite your parish or school to pray together with our Power to Be liturgy. You can even involve the children with our new children’s liturgy resource.
- Spread the Word
Parishioners from The Mission on Anglesey, Anglesey particapated in their own Power to Be card signing back in June.
- Get creative
Create an eye-catching Power to Be sun display; perfect for children and adults alike!
St Joseph’s Primary, Llangefni and God the Holy Spirit Primary, Newtown set great examples earlier in the year, with their suns display which had promises to save energy, prayers for change and messages to the World Bank on its rays. Can you do something similar?
We have already had some fantastic responses to our campaign, but there is still time for you to get involved and make a difference. Colette Byrne said “This is a campaign with a real focus – we really can make a difference in practical ways and it is so simple!”
