Season of Creation Week 2

The Season of Creation continues to be celebrated across the globe. This week we discovered touching stories in the Philippines, where the Institute of Formation and Religious Studies gathered for a celebration; in a message from the Archbishop of Jakarta; in a prayer gathering in Rome; in a Pilgrimage for the Planet along the Thames River in London; and a tree planting at the Shrine of Our Lady of Huachana in Argentina, among so many other things that we don’t have time to tell you about!

Aid to the Church in Need

Aid to the Church in Need is a Pontifical Foundation of the Catholic Church, supporting the Catholic faithful and other Christians where they are persecuted, oppressed or in pastoral need. You can view details of their work as well as many heart-rending stories by visiting their website where you can also donate, if you are able to do so, to support our suffering brothers and sisters. Above all else please offer your prayers.
