Martha Vickers our parish volunteer at St Francis de Sales told me about the Season of Creation mass that they had on Sunday 3rd October.
” Fr Zbigniew incorporated the theme in to his homily and linked it with the Gospel as regards our being responsible stewards of the Earth. Our folk group provided the music with some lovely earth focused hymns. We did a small display in front of the Altar on the theme using a globe and reminders about reducing waste/recycling .
The children’s liturgy group which has just started again focused on caring for the earth and they drew a picture of our world which they shared with the congregation when they returned.
At the end of the mass I shared the Harvest family fast day story about how Ivanilde and her community are protecting and resorting the amazon rainforest in the area of Brazil where they live.
Many thanks to Martha and the Justice and Peace group for organising the mass .
