Today marks the beginning of the Season of Creation. This is an annual ecumenical event which runs until October 4th, the feast of St Francis of Assisi.
Although a fairly new event, the Pope has asked us to ensure that it becomes very firmly a fixture in our liturgical calendar, and so it has been for the last few years.
The theme this year is "Let Justice and Peace Flow", In his annual message, Pope Francis urges us to "heed our call to stand with the victims of environmental and climate injustice, and to put an end to the senseless war against creation."
We will be marking the Season of Creation each Sunday through our liturgy at Mass, through prayers, music and reflections. We will also culminate with a special ecumenical service on October 4th, where we will echo the pleas of Pope Francis.
There will also be a special series of social media posts every Friday, with further quotes and reflections from the Holy Father. These will be replicated here on our website and the images will form the basis of the bulletin cover every weekend.
Watch the video below to get a flavour of the Season of Creation.
