While many make the decision to ‘give up’ something for Lent, a group of students at Mercedes College are instead focusing on how they can change their habits in line with Pope Francis’ plea to ‘Care for Our Common Home’.
Pope Francis has chosen an ecological theme for his annual Lenten message. Titled 'For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God' the message is dated October 4, 2018, the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, but was only made public by the Vatican earlier this month.
