SUBJECT: CONCLUDING 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. I wish to personally invite you and your Parish/School/Barangay Ecology Ministers and Laudato Si Advocates to join our Bishop, His Excellency, Most Rev. Jesse E. Mercado, D.D., in the concelebrated Laudato Si Mass, as a fitting conclusion to the Season of Creation, on October 6, 2019, Sunday, at 4:00 in the afternoon, 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.”
May the Lord of Creation bless and strengthen us as together we care for our common home.
