September: Season of Creation

Season of Creation
The Season of Creation begins on September 1, World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.

Throughout September we invite our students to participate by arranging chapel experiences outlining the (1) beauty of creation and (2) our obligation as children of God to look after God’s creation.
Pope Francis:
As stewards of God’s creation, we are called to make the earth a beautiful garden for the human family.’
Genesis 1:26-31
Then God said, “And now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will have power over the fish, the birds, and all animals, domestic and wild, large and small.” So, God created human beings, making them to be like himself. He created them male and female, blessed them, and said, “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals. I have provided all kinds of grain and all kinds of fruit for you to eat; but for all the wild animals and for all the birds I have provided grass and leafy plants for food”—and it was done. God looked at everything he had made, and he was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came—that was the sixth day.
Also, as International Peace Day lands in September we promote the beauty of peace and try to instil a moral sense of purpose within each of students to become beacons of hope and peace.
