Justice, Peace & Care of Creation

Kedron Parish seeks to promote justice, peace and care for creation through aspiring to live out the principles of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si – to help put our “ecological conversion” into actions – ranging from recycling to climate change advocacy.  Please contact our Parish Office to get involved!

The Season of Creation:  Sept 1st – Oct 4th, 2022

The Season of Creation has special significance for the Catholic Church, particularly since Pope Francis established September 1st as the annual World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation. It is a time marked throughout the Christian world from 1st September to 4th October (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the joy of creation as well as encourages awareness-raising initiatives to help us to heal and protect Our Common Home. The theme this year is Listening to the Voice of Creation.
