On Sunday afternoon McQuaid Jesuit hosted a tree planting and blessing with Rochester Interfaith Climate Action. This event was in solidarity with youth calling for action on climate change and those participating in the Global Climate Strike taking place September 20-27. Members of the McQuaid Jesuit community joined with members from the Islamic Center of Rochester, Temple B’rith Kodesh, and Twelve Corners Presbyterian raising awareness of the need for climate justice action nationally and in our own community. Fr. Al Hicks, S.J., helped lead our tree blessing and freshman Collin Brown shared why this issue is especially important for young people.
