Care for God’s Creation. The Gospel teaches us that there are two greatest commandments: love God and love your neighbor. (Mark 12:28-34). What does care for the environment have to do with this?

Join Faith in Action Thursday June 29, 7-8:30pm in the Health Ministry room when we will use mind mapping to explore connections between these 2 great commandments and care for earth, air, and water. Then share ideas on how we, as Christians, can take action, in small or large ways.

Listen |  Learn |  Reflect |  Act

A prayer, from the Season of Creation 2022 Celebration Guide:

Loving God, who hears every voice, knows each cry of injustice, and is attentive to the suffering of the earth: teach us to listen. Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it, that we may listen to the world you have created and not close ourselves off from it. Reveal to us the ways in which we have failed to hear your voice in how we treat the earth.

Below are some resources that can help you listen and learn about Creation.

Are you discerning how to live out your faith? Join our small faith community as we explore Catholic social teaching in a spirit of fellowship and compassion. Wherever you think the Lord is leading you, you can learn about issues of today and locate organizations that share your interest. We grow through meetings of learning and dialogue as well as border crossing activities where we depart from our comfort zones and actively engage with the community.
