As the new buds appear for Spring, you are invited to participate in the Diocese of Parramatta’s celebration of ‘the Season of Creation’. It’s the annual worldwide Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home that takes place each September through to October. The event culminates on the 4th of October, The Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi.
For Catholics around the world, the 2020 Season of Creation marks five years since the release of Laudato Si’, the letter from Pope Francis on the care of our common home. Pope Francis says “This is the season for letting our prayer life be inspired anew, to reflect on our lifestyles, to undertake prophetic acts for creation. It’s a time to call for courageous decisions, and direct the planet towards life not death. The Season of Creation is a time to care for the most vulnerable, and restore the connections that make us whole.”
