Creation Walk in Woodley

creation-walk-woodley-sept-2016Thank you so much to Rita Belletty from St John Bosco in  Woodley who shared this lovely photo with us of the parish ‘Creation Walk’ which took place on 1st September to mark the World Day Of Prayer for Care of Creation.

As you know, Pope Francis has established 1 September as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, encouraging the Catholic community around the world to pray for our common home.

The annual Day of Prayer is inspired by his landmark encyclical Laudato Si’, which calls on “every person living on this planet” to care for our shared earth.

Pope Francis calls us all to celebrate this opportune moment to “reaffirm [our] personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation, as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

Has Rita’s walk inspired you?

You could also get together with others in your church and reflect on the themes of Laudato Si’.
