A “Wave of Hope” banner will go up at Our Lady of the Portal church from Tuesday 1st June onwards, visible from the street below and the Trafalgar roundabout. It will include hands made by parishioners, in a big wave of our hope for a healthier, fairer and greener world. Thank you to Fr John for permission to put this up.
It forms part of a Cornwall-wide initiative to send a message to the G7 Conference delegates, advocating for people on the margins and living in poverty. The Conference will be meeting in Carbis Bay from 11th to 13th June, where they will also see a display of waving hands representing churches and faith organisations from all over Cornwall, including ours.
If you haven’t sent a hand but want to actively join in this initiative exercising “the prophetic voice of the church in support of stewardship and appropriate environmental action”, please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org and give us your “hand” by Monday evening (so better get drawing!)
