Season of Creation

September 1 (World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) - October 4, (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology)
Just months after publishing his 2015 encyclical "Laudato Si', on Care for Our Common Home," Pope Francis formally added the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation to the Catholic calendar as an annual day of prayer. Last year he invited Catholics to celebrate the full season.

"Now is the time to rediscover our vocation as children of God, brothers and sisters, and stewards of creation. Now is the time to repent, to be converted and to return to our roots," he wrote in a letter. "We are beloved creatures of God, who in his goodness calls us to love life and live it in communion with the rest of creation. For this reason, I strongly encourage the faithful to pray in these days that, as the result of a timely ecumenical initiative, are being celebrated as a Season of Creation."

This year is the 5th Anniversary of Laudato Si' & the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.

It's a time to reflect on our relationship with the environment — not just "distant" nature, but, crucially, the place where we live — and the ways in which our lifestyles and decisions as a society can endanger both the natural world and those inhabiting it, both humans and other creatures.
It's a time of prayer, contemplation and, increasingly, calls to action.

St. John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M.

John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M., was a French priest, who served as a missionary in Wuhan (Hubei Province, the origin of the current pandemic) China, where he became a martyr. He was canonized in 1996 by Pope John Paul II.

At this time we can call on his intercession. We will be displaying his picture during this current pandemic.

San Juan Gabriel Perboyre, C.M.

John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M., fue un sacerdote francés, que sirvió como misionero en Wuhan (provincia de Hubei, el origen de la pandemia actual) China, donde se convirtió en mártir. Fue canonizado en 1996 por el Papa Juan Pablo II.
