We welcome the beginning of The Season of Creation 2021.
The Season of Creation is marked throughout the Christian world annually from 1 September to 4 October (Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the joy of creation as well as encouraging awareness-raising initiatives to protect the natural environment.
The theme for 2021 is ‘Restoring Our Common Home’ and this month we are asked to awaken to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other and to encourage our parish communities to do the same, “for we know that things can change!” (Laudato Si’, 13).
“Rivers do not drink their own water;
trees do not eat their own fruit;
the Sun does not shine on itself and
flowers do not spread their
fragrance for themselves.
Living for others is a rule of nature.
– Pope Francis
