Season of Creation

The Season of Creation began September 1st and continues until October 4th. It is a time to be stewards of creation. It begins with World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation (September 1st)
and ends with the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi (October 4th).

It is a time to evaluate and reaffirm efforts to be stewards of creation. It is also a time to give thanks for creation as well as continue to work to protect creation.

Here is a PDF of this year’s guide.

Fall Zen: September Labyrinth Walk

Tuesday, September 22 7:00 – 8:30 pm

$5

Led by Donna Doone

Zen teaches that the gift of serenity and joy is available anytime, deep within ourselves. Our labyrinth walk will have us looking beyond the surface as we journey but with an “ inner eye to guide us”. Where  you place your foot, there rests a blessing.

Our labyrinth is located on Wengert Road, at the second drive to the right.
