As the Stewards of Creation (Genesis 1:26-30) we are called to care for our planet and all creation. However, we have not shown sufficient respect and attention to God's gifts to us. In our calendar this year we have put forward several opportunities for communities to pray and reflect on our responsibility to care for our planet. The Opening of the New School Year liturgy could be an opportunity to make a commitment to addressing this issue within your own school community. The End of the Year liturgy could also be an opportunity to celebrate the success of actions taken. Other occasions that could be used for reflection are World Water Day - March 22, World Earth Day April 22, World Environment Day June 5, and World Food Day October 16. May our prayer and reflection time encourage us to be people of action ready to change our ways. We're all in this together.
