This month’s program will last the entire month and can involve the entire parish community. Whether or not you attend our in-person meeting, you can take part as the world celebrates the Season of Creation, an ecumenical movement to work together to listen and care for our common home. This year’s theme is Listen to the Voice of Creation, with the burning bush as its metaphor.

On your own, with a friend, or involving your whole family, you can spend at least a bit of time this month to pray and learn about the environment, environmental justice, or any area related to the environment. We will meet on October 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, from 7:00-8:30p in classroom 9, to share our experiences.

Get started by:

  • Reading Pope Francis’ message launching this year’s Season of Creation
  • Learning more about the Season of Creation movement.

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.
