SUBJECT: CELEBRATION OF THE SEASON OF CREATION 2019
Dear Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers and Sisters, co-WARRIORS FOR MOTHER EARTH:
HAPPY SEASON OF CREATION 2019!
From September 1 to October 4, 2019, our Diocese joins the Worldwide celebration of this year’s Season of Creation. Please find attached some liturgical materials which you could use in integrating the Challenges of Laudato Si into our liturgical celebrations within the said period / season of creation. I wish to personally invite you and your Parish/School/Barangay Ecology Ministers and Laudato Si Advocates to join us in the concelebrated Mass launching the Season of Creation, on August 31, 2019, Saturday, at 9:30 in the morning, at the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Baclaran, Paranaque City. As communicated by Very Rev. Msgr. Bruno Marie Duffe, the Secretary of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, “The theme for 2019 is “the web of life,’ a theme that connects our role as the stewards of God’s creation with the urgent need to protect biodiversity.”
Furthermore, if you have “BEST PRACTICES ON HOW OUR COMMUNITY CARES FOR OUR COMMON HOME” captured and documented through POWERPOINT PRESENTATION, kindly send them to me through my email address (email add: firstname.lastname@example.org), so that we could share them to all the participants in the said celebration, and to all our Parishes, Schools and Barangay Communities of the Diocese of Paranaque.
