Many good ideas have come from our planning of the parish feast celebration on September 29. The main thing to know is that we are going to join together for a potluck meal after the 11:30 a.m. Mass. So please plan on gathering with your fellow parishioners around 12:30 p.m. in the parish center for food, fellowship, and some particularly “festive” extras to honor the feast day of St. Therese of Lisieux, the “little flower.” More info to come on what all that fun will look like.
Last Sunday, we celebrated World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. During the Season of Creation between September 1 and October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, major Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and Anglican organizations have joined to encourage the 2.2 billion Christians worldwide to pray and act on ecological issues.
In four weeks will be our parish celebration. Plans are in the works this week as we try to honor our patroness and rejoice in the blessing of our parish community. Hopefully next week some more details will be available.

Today, September 1, is designated as World Day of Care for All Creation. That was a pronouncement of Pope Francis after the publication of his encyclical letter, Laudato Si, in 2015. The challenge around designating a day for special attention is, what happens between September 2 and August 31.
