Tomorrow is the World Day of Prayer for Care of the Earth and the start of the Season of Creation. Running through the month and ending on October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the Season of Creation is a time for us to focus on the many challenges Mother Earth faces.
We invite you to take part in this holy Season. Each week during the Season of Creation, our Sisters, Staff and Franciscan Associates will share information, prayers and reflections on our planet and all that lives here. Sister Martha Torbik also offers some tips about how you can protect the planet without leaving home!
