Columban Society Leader, Fr Tim Mulroy, requests that all of us make a special effort to invite others to join this endeavour to celebrate the Season of Creation (Sept 1-Oct 4). Fr Tim says, "May the celebration of the Season of Creation provide us with an opportunity to develop a greater appreciation of God’s love and care as expressed in the web of life, and help us to continue growing in empathy with people and places that are vulnerable and exploited."

Pope Francis says in Laudato Si', "Nature cannot be regarded as something separate from ourselves or as a mere setting in which we live.  We are part of nature, included in it and thus in constant interaction with it." (LS 139)
