The Season of Creation began on 1 September, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. This is the annual Christian celebration to listen and respond together to the cry of Creation. It is dear to Pope Francis’ heart. This year many Christian communities will unite around the theme, “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” There will be a Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament each Friday in September from 7 pm – 8 pm. Please come along and join with the Parish Environmental Group to place before the Lord our concerns and worries for the world and all the creatures that inhabit it.
