Laudato Si': A Mass Celebrating the Season of Creation
Saturday, September 30 | 10:30 am
St. James Cathedral, 804 Ninth Avenue, Seattle
Lunch and Resource Fair to follow
Join with Christians worldwide to commemorate the Season of Creation, the time between September 1 (World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) and October 4 (feast day of St. Francis of Assisi).
We invite all people of faith to celebrate the joy which the Earth shares with us. Let us come together to thank God for the richness that is in the Creation which we share. Father Michael G. Ryan will preside at the Mass. A lunch and resource fair will follow. All are welcome.
In instituting the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, Pope Francis expressed the hope that it would “offer individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”
