The Season of Creation concludes on Monday, October 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. Our final initiative this week is to CELEBRATE! Do something that allows you to enjoy the awesome gift this is our Earth – go for a hike, get yourself some autumn flowers, listen to birds singing outside your window, play an outdoor sport…

For anyone interested, a Closing Ceremony for the Season of Creation will be presented by United Nations Youth Ambassador Amanda Costa on YouTube on October 4 at 11:00am local time, which you can join in with live or watch later on at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KPiOditnRk
This ceremony will invite us to celebrate the season and push forward in our effort to care for God’s creation with hope.

Thank-you for taking part in this year’s Season of Creation! May we all move ahead with renewed enthusiasm for and commitment to our calling to be stewards of the Earth.
