Season of Creation

Posted by Dana Hinton

September 1, 2023

The Season of Creation begins today, September 1, and continues through October 4. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth have several things planned to recognize this effort.

Sisters from the community garden and a couple of employees were invited to submit their reflections on the garden. These were placed on table cards that will be used at Nazareth. The table cards include a meal prayer on the opposite of the reflection side of the card. Individuals are invited to sit at different tables and/or exchange a table card with that from another table in reflecting upon and celebrating the food that comes to our tables.

“The Season of Creation is a special time of the year to pray with others as part of and with God’s creation. I am reminded that our joint response in loving creation comes from first being in a loving relationship with our Creator God.” – Jasmine Kwong Creation Care Catalyst, Lausanne Movement

“This Season of Creation will be an opportunity to pray, reflect and act together as the People of God for our common home. Like tributaries joining forces to become a mighty river, the ecumenical family will come together on a synodal path of care for our common home through justice and peace.” – Sister Alessandra Smerilli, Secretary of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development
