Care of God’s Creation Beauty Contest

Around the Diocese

With the celebration of the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si (Care of Our Common Home); our Holy Father calls us to join with others to address environmental challenges that face our planet and the people who live in it. During the Season of Creation which spans 5 weeks starting September 1 (World Day of Prayer for Creation) and ending on October 4 (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi) we are encouraging parishioners and students to take time to experience the awe and wonder all around us with the “Season of Creation Challenge.” Parishioners and students are asked to survey their parish and/or school campuses and photograph the most beautiful outdoor area and then submit photos with parish/school name and a brief description to: Photos will be displayed on the diocesan website and social media.
