Join the Missionary Society of St. Columban for a prayer service to celebrate the beginning of the Season of Creation.
From September 1 (World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) to October 4 (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi) each year, the Christian community celebrates the Season of Creation by praying and acting together to protect our common home. This online service will gather us together in prayer to prepare us for this special time of year.
We're also excited to announce that during the prayer service, the Columbans will launch the second season of our podcast, Jubilee for the Earth: Biodiversity and Our Sacred Story. This podcast is about the beauty of God’s biodiversity and the threats it faces. As part of the service, we'll livestream the first episode of the new season, "Everything is Holy: Biodiversity Loss + Spirituality."
Sr. Sheila Kinsey, FCJM will also be joining us to provide a reflection on the episode.
This prayer service is scheduled at a time to accommodate those living in Asia and Oceania. We're hosting a separate prayer service to accommodate those living in Europe and the Americas. Register for that here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_hKPilu3FRy6e4_MGyrPmww
We hope you will join us!
