Creation Mass at Woodley

CaptureOn 14th September St John Bosco Church in Woodley celebrated its sixth annual Creation Mass for the Environment and Harvest Offering.

Rita Belletty, our CAFOD volunteer told us;

“The liturgy was first used by Bishop Declan Lang in Clifton and provided by CAFOD, including the Our Father – Your Kingdom Come.

Parishioners are invited to bring something they have grown themselves, whether it is a vegetable, herb or flower as a token of their gratitude for God’s bounty which serves to remind us that we are co-creators, not exploiters.

The Mass is organised by the parish’s LiveSimply group, whilst the choir and musicians and flower arrangers endeavour to complement the theme.”

Thank you Rita. It sounds fantastic! A great way to celebrate harvest!
