Next week is Earth Day (https://www.earthday.org/earth-day-2021/), and in accord with that and St Pat’s commitment to Care for Creation, we are sharing the new documentary “The Condor and the Eagle” (https://thecondorandtheeagle.com/) on Wednesday, April 21 at 7pm. Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87671456490?pwd=R09WSENPMWFwMndZRnFVZjJxZ3J2UT09
The film’s title is rooted in the ancient Native American saying, “When the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South fly together, Indigenous peoples will unite the human family.” It follows different Native American environmental activists on their journeys of connecting with other tribes and world leaders, all in an effort to preserve the environment and their homes from damaging oil companies. It has won many awards and has enthusiastic reviews, but I’ll just quote one of our own parishioners, Nancy Miller:
“I watched the Condor and the Eagle tonight and it is an incredibly powerful movie of what we are doing to indigenous people and the land on which they live, from Canada to Ecuador.”
This is another documentary that we must pay ($99) to access, so we again request $5 donations from those who are comfortable paying for this documentary. As before, contributions can be made by PayPal (@stossdad), Venmo (@Paul-Sampson-23), or check mailed to Paul Sampson, 8458 Tillicum Rd SW, Seattle, WA 98136-2417. Contributions exceeding the $99 target will be made available to our Social Justice Ministry (including our Care for Creation group). Contributions for the documentary “Undeterred” have exceeded our target for that movie by about $30 so far.
[Incidentally, the Catholic Climate Covenant has a showing April 20 at 4pm (where requested donations start at $15, so we are offering a bargain!): https://thecondorandtheeagle.com/the-catholic-climate-covenant-april-20th-7pm-et/]
Join us for the viewing and our usual post-viewing fellowship and discussion.
