Sandhurst Diocese 'Care for Creation'

STATEMENT AND BISHOP SHANE MACKINLAY’S LETTER

Pope Francis has invited Catholic people everywhere to join the Season of Creation 2020, a year that marks the fifth anniversary of the encyclical ‘On Care for Our Common Home,’ Laudato Si. In the Sandhurst Diocese Bishop Shane Mackinlay has endorsed the first Sandhurst Diocese ‘Care for Creation’ Statement, prepared to encourage a greater appreciation of Creation and a deeper understanding of our responsibility for its care.  Download Bishop Shane's letter here. The Statement is available in more than one format, to help make it easily accessible. In addition to a plain text format, a presentation booklet, which can be read online and printed for those who would like a hard copy.

For each week of the Season of Creation a short slide show (2-4 minutes, online) will present a section of the ‘Care for Creation’ Statement, followed by prayer and reflection questions for individuals and online discussion groups. The focus for the Feast of St Francis of Assisi 4th October, will be ‘What can we do?’

The Statement was prepared at the request of the Sandhurst Diocese Adult Faith Education Reference Group by a working group whose members are: Sr Cecilia Merrigan (Chair), Kerry Stone (Sandhurst Justice / Caritas incorporating Catholic Earthcare), Kylie Smith (Catholic Education Sandhurst) and Lyn Breen (Adult Faith Education Sandhurst).
