Earth Day: Pet Blessing - 10 am & Movie - 'A Sense of Wonder - 7 pm

SPECIAL EARTH DAY CELEBRATIONS AT KNOX IN PARKSVILLE – April 22 - A PET BLESSING CEREMONY & A NOTEWORTHY RACHEL CARSON ENVIRONMENTAL MOVIE


At 10 am, on Sunday, April 22nd, celebrate Earth Day with us at Knox United Church, 345 Pym St. Parksville for a Pet Blessing Ceremony. People of all faiths are welcome to bring their furry & feathered family members, or a photo of their pet, for a heartwarming Earth Day Blessing. Please make sure these pets are leashed or safely in a cage, and don’t forget your camera to record this special occasion.


Then later, on April 22, at 7 pm, we’re holding another Earth Day Celebration. Knox is showing the fascinating movie entitled “A Sense of Wonder”. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. – entry is by donation and there will be free popcorn for all!


The documentary-style film “A Sense Of Wonder” takes the form of two interviews with Rachel Carson during the last year of her life, as she battles cancer and her critics in the wake of publishing “Silent Spring”. Using the author's own writings as the basis for the film, writer and actress Kaiulani Lee provides an intimate glimpse of Carson as she is thrust into the role of controversial public figure.


Rachel Carson has been called the patron saint of the modern environmental movement. A quiet biologist who shook the world with her revelations about America's use of pesticides in the years following World War II, Carson has been named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. Of her book “Silent Spring”, Al Gore wrote, "Without this book, the environmental movement might have been long delayed or never developed at all."


We look forward to sharing these 2 very special celebrations with you.
