The Season of Creation begins tomorrow!
As we move through the Summer and towards the Fall season, we are aware of the beauty and wonder of creation all around us. Colour and life abounds along our streets, roadsides and shores. We are blessed to live in the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island! Again this year, we are joining with Christians around the world to celebrate the Season of Creation. This is an opportunity for you, your family and your parish to give thanks for the blessings of “this fragile Earth, our island home.” This year’s theme is “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” Liturgical resources are available to assist you in planning one or more special services throughout this Season, as well as ideas for inspiring projects and events that will help you to live out your baptismal vow to “strive to safeguard the integrity of God’s creation, and respect, sustain and renew the life of the Earth.” As we hear about and witness the devastating impacts of the climate crisis in our communities and world today, I encourage each of us to commit to participating in some way in the Season of Creation through prayer, education and action. A list of resources can be found here.
