PRAYER FOR THE CARE OF THE EARTH AND ITS PEOPLE

Pope Francis has declared September 1st as an Annual Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, in union with the churches of the East, who have done so for some time now. Mass on Thursday morning is at 8:15 AM, and we will celebrate a Service of the Word at 7 PM.  The evening Liturgy of the Word includes, scripture, song, silence, intercessory prayer, blessing with holy water, and a preached reflection by Gina Orlando on our call to connect more deeply to the earth and its peoples. This will be our second year to offer this service. Invite your friends!
