Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope

This is the 2020 theme for the Season of Creation declared by Pope Francis from September 1 -October 4.  We enter into a time of restoration and hope, a jubilee for our Earth, that requires radically new ways of living with creation.

This particular year, the need for a just and sustainable system has been revealed by the far-reaching effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.  As followers of Christ from around the globe, we share a common role as caretakers of God’s creation.  We rejoice in this opportunity to care for our common home and our sisters and brothers who share it.

  • Our Care for Creation Team is planning an action of this season on Wednesday, September 16 with special prayer and intercessions at evening mass.  Then all are invited for a brief prayer outdoors. 
  • Also consider joining us for a trash pick up around our church on Wednesday, September 23, at 6:15 pm after mass.  Please advise Nancy Singh,  singh_nancy@yahoo.com so we have enough vests, gloves, etc.
