A service of prayer and music, marking Season of Creation 2022, takes place in the Cathedral on Thursday 8 September at 7:30pm. Bishop Michael Duignan will preside.
The service includes a talk by Nóirin Lynch, Director of the Faithful Companions of Jesus Spirituality House in Spanish Point. She says: “The Season of Creation’s symbol of the burning bush reminds us that we share this earth with all living things. We are responsible for the care of the planet and our actions are going to have a direct impact on the poor and on the next generations. Our spirituality must recognise the hand of God in all creation.”
The service is organised by the diocesan Laudato Si’ Care for Creation working group. It includes participation by pupils from local schools and parishes, and is followed by bulb distribution and a reception to facilitate networking between parishes.
Season of Creation
Each year from 1 September 1 to 4 October, the Christian family unites for a worldwide celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home. The theme of this year’s Season of Creation is ‘Listen to the Voice of Creation’, and its imagery centres around the burning bush.
