The Season of Creation
is celebrated annually by tens of thousands of Christians around the world between September 1 and October 4-Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. During the Season of Creation, we pray and act to protect God’s creation.
Pope Francis has designated September 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
You can join an online prayer service as we begin the Season of Creation. Youth from around the globe will lead this service and offer reflections.
This year’s theme, Jubilee for the Earth, invites us to consider the integral relationship between rest for the earth and ecological, economic, social and political ways of living. This particular year, the need for just and sustainable systems has been revealed by the far-reaching effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
WHEN & WHERE:
September 1, 2020 (10:00 to 11:00 AM)
Season of Creation Global Ecumenical Online Prayer Service

A special collection
Archbishop Lépine has requested that a collection be taken up in all parishes in order to assist those affected by the horrendous explosion in Beirut.
All monies collected will be sent to the Maronite community, who are already working as volunteers on relief efforts in Lebanon.
If you will not be attending Mass this weekend, you can make an online donation directly to Development and Peace – Caritas Canada.
As a member of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, Development and Peace will be participating in the matching fund launched by the Canadian Government and the Humanitarian Coalition to help the people of Lebanon.

Food Bank Donation
We have a new tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a more continuous basis. Over 860,000 Canadians visit food banks every month, with over 36% of the donations feeding hungry children.
During the COVID‑19 isolation, please leave your items in a bag at the door of the rectory. Donations will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s parish food bank.
