You were invited to participate in the Diocese of Parramatta’s celebration of ‘the Season of Creation’. It was part of the annual worldwide Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home that takes place each September through to October. Culminating on the 4th of October, The Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, we released our Season of Creation: Community Reflection.
We prayed, painted, wrote, sung, captured and reflected on what creation means to us, on our favourite places and praised our God and Creator.
Together, we created a community reflection video where we prayed together St Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of Creation, which inspired the title of Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si – Praised be to You.
There were also submissions which couldn’t be included in the video reflection, but wonderfully represented God’s creation and the call of the moment.
Thank you to all who participated, for sharing their talents and their special places with us. Praised by to God!
