Season of Creation: Jubilee for the Earth
And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty
throughout the land to all its inhabitants. Leviticus 25
Join us from 1st September – 4th October 2020 for Season of Creation
Each year during the month of September, the Christian family unites to celebrate the Season of Creation, a worldwide celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home. This year’s theme Jubilee for the Earth presents an invitation to consider the integral relationship between rest for the earth and ecological, social, and political ways of living. This year, in particular, the need for just and sustainable systems has been highlighted by the far-reaching effects of the COVID19 pandemic. There is a need for the moral imagination typified by the idea of a Jubilee year in all aspects of our efforts to care for our common home.
Jesuit Missions is organising a number of ways that you can get involved and help to create a sustainable legacy for future generations.
