Celebrating Creationtide 2017

The Creationtide season runs from 1 September until 4 October, the feast of St Francis every year. We are called to pay special attention to the responsibility of humanity for the Earth and for all that lives upon it. 

Pope Francis declared September 1 as World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation in 2015: “The annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation offers to individual believers and to the community a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of Creation, raising to God our thanks for the marvellous works that He has entrusted to our care, invoking His help for the protection of creation and his mercy for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

Pope Francis continues to urge world leaders to “listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor” and take measures to protect the environment.

 

Join us for this special PRAYER FOR CREATIONTIDE 2017

Creator of all life, in all its beauty and fragility
May we give you thanks for the gift of this creation.
Creator of all, stones, rocks, winds and seas
It is we who bring terror upon ourselves…
(Remembering Hurricane Harvey and the monsoon floods in Bangladesh,
Save us from ourselves, and limitless growth.)
Your mercy is as wide as the sea, grant us
Voices that speak out and the heart to bring about change
That the earth be filled with Your glory
And Your gentle love fill every breathing being.
